The 1440 Film Challenge, hosted by the Chicago Comedy Film Festival, tasked teams of Columbia filmmakers to create a short film in 24 hours, or 1,440 minutes. This challenge pushed the teams to work quickly and come up with original scripts based on the given prompts. The winning team will have its film shown at the Chicago Comedy Film Festival in March 2020.
