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.
