what is it
MULTIPLEX is an experiment in interpretation and restrictions on short form movie making.
At each live show, we screen 5 brand-new short films that were all created in the last two months, inspired the same title. We encourage filmmakers not to make the first idea that comes to their mind but rather the 3rd, 4th, or 10th. Typically, the wider the gap between the title and the work, the more interesting the concept is.
How it works
We come up with a title that we find engaging unique and then accept pitch submissions from people who want to make a short 3-6 minute movie with that title.
Because films are cool. And restriction is the key to creativity. And we all get to hang out. Shut up.
