Fischgaard 2020

The Fischgaard Short Film Project takes place once a year in Aberdeen, South Dakota. It's mission is to motivate independent filmmakers and to enhance film as art in South Dakota. During the competition, filmmaking teams create a movie - writing, shooting and editing a four to seven minute film - all in one weekend.

It is open to professionals and amateurs alike. The films are adjudicated and awards are handed out following the public viewing.

Public viewing Sunday, Feb 16th, 6:30pm at the Capitol Theatre.

This year's event occurs from Feb 14-16, 2020. The filmmakers' kickoff event (where participating teams learn what the required elements are) is Friday, Feb 14th, 5:30pm at the Red Rooster Coffee House.

The public viewing is Sunday, Feb 16th at the Capitol Theatre. Tickets to the public viewing are sold at the door beginning at 5:30pm for $5 per person. Doors to the auditorium open at 6:00pm.
