“Oh DVMISSION you are delightfully weird…” and what a night it was!

So the 11th DVMISSION 48 Hour Film Challenge is done and dusted with and with a new decade ahead we launched our new concept for the awards night DVMISSION PRESENTS. Taking our inspiration from the challenge genre we staged Da Da Land, an immersive cinematic experience.

Here are a few comments from those who attended this strange and rather wonderful event at The Wedgewood Rooms:

“There were people with rabbit masks and pale faced weirdos… was that a dream?”

“A curious evening…”

“The Twin Peaks inspired stage set ups and tables were really cool…”

“What is going on?”

“Never been happier to be beaten by dancing satsumas…”

“Oh DVMISSION you are delightfully weird…”

“If you are not doing this you are missing out…”

We agree there, if you are not doing this then you are missing out. DVMISSION is the longest running 48 Hour Film Challenge in the UK, it is south coast through and through and is the only time of the year you will find so many media makers under one roof.

We were pleased to see people dressed to impress and really threw themselves into the experience. Next year we are even planning on adding another award “Most Dressed to Impress” though I am sure we will find a better title.

So for now, stay tuned, we hope to have dates for 2018 soon. Plus we need your help putting this show on the road so if you have time and skills you want to donate then please get in touch.
