SATO48 Awards Tonight

The “Academy Awards” of Springfield take place tonight at the Gillioz Theater when the SATO48 Awards are handed out.

The event includes a walk on the red carpet, a ceremony giving out statuettes to the winners and a screening of all the winning films.

The red carpet begins at 6 p.m. when the doors open and the ceremony begins at 7 p.m. Tickets are $5 at the door.

SATO48 is a film competition where filmmakers get 48 hours to make a five-minute short film. The filmmakers do not know the subject of their film until they’re given an “Inspiration Package” from the contest organizers. The teams then have to interpret the instructions, write a script, produce the film and deliver it to the organizers within the 48 hour time limit.

An “afterparty” is included with the ticket price.
