Hilary Kee and Sarah Conrad, creators of the short film Food Fight, took top honours at this year's 24 Hour Film Festival. The event challenged McMaster students and alumni to write, shoot, edit and deliver a five-minute film in just one day.

The Lyons New Media Centre recently rolled out the red carpet for the third annual McMaster 24 Hour Film Festival gala event.

With popcorn in hand, McMaster students, alumni, staff and faculty gathered at the Art Gallery of Hamilton to screen the top ten festival entries and to announce the winning films, selected by a jury of industry specialists.

The festival challenged McMaster students and alumni to write, shoot, edit and deliver a five-minute film over a 24 hour period using three required elements — a prop (something maroon), a line of dialogue ("How do you like them apples?") and a location (in a park).

Fifteen teams registered for the competition, and 12 successfully completed their films on time.

The film Food Fight took top honours, followed by The Bad Apple and The Good Buy. The audience choice award was presented to The Thrall Within.

The Lyons New Media Centre, located in Mills Memorial Library, is a space for the innovative creation and use of new media in teaching, learning and research at McMaster.
