RIPFEST collaborative film project is an annual filmmaking project run by a collaborative group of film and television producers and past participants. The organization assigns several teams of filmmakers, and gives them two weeks to write, shoot and edit a complete, original short film. Started in 2002, there have been 10 RIPFEST events in New York City and LA, producing more than 80 original short films. RIPFEST #11 begins April 10, 2010, shoots April 17–18, and Premieres April 26.
RIPFEST collaborative film project is one of the only film festivals that makes its own films.
For each group, a Producer, writer, composer, director, cinematographer, editor, and 2–4 actors are chosen. The group must follow a strict schedule: – 2 days for re-writes – 2 days for pre-production – 2 days to shoot the film – 1 week for post production, scoring, and graphics.
RIPFEST began as the film division of a non-profit arts organization called Raw Impressions, in May 2002. Since then, it has developed into a collaboratively run film group based in New York City. Founding members include David Rodwin, Erik Bryan Slavin, Chris Tiné, Jackie Stolfi and Bruce Kennedy.
