SATO48 Registration Now Open


SATO48 is a filmmaking challenge where creatives from Springfield And The Ozarks (SATO) form teams to compete in creating a five-minute short film over the course of a single weekend – 48 hours.

None of the teams know what their film must be about until they all open, simultaneously, a secret envelope (the “Inspiration Package”), which describes the criteria of the short film.
