Pueblo the backdrop for 24-hour movies

Pueblo filmmakers are probably trying to catch up on sleep after they were up all night Saturday; putting the final touches on their movies for the 24-hour Film Festival.

Several teams rushed their hard work over to the Sangre de Cristo Arts Center to meet Sunday's deadline of 11 a.m. It's the fourth year for this competition in Pueblo.

Crews had to write, shoot, and edit their movies in just one day. They started at 11 a.m. Saturday, and a lot of them needed all the time they could get.

"We had to hurry before the sun set; we had a few problems with lighting being down." In the end it worked out pretty good," says Blake Simony, with Team Rubix, who competed in the youth division.

"You get quite a few in here last minute; there's always that last minute problem that happens that you're down to the wire, especially with 24 hours," Nicki Hart tells News 5 as she takes in the entries.

These movies will be screened on Friday, November 18th, and you can come out to watch. The youth division's movies will be shown at 4 p.m. in the Rawlings Library -- that's free to attend. The main division's movies will be shown at 8 p.m. at the Sangre de Cristo Arts Center. Tickets for the main division are ten dollars; seven for students. They can be purchased at the door, or ahead of time at the Arts Center's box office.
