What can YOU do in just 48 hours?

Use your wits and make your escape before time runs out! Winter Film Awards and Mission Escape Games  team up for our upcoming 48-Hour Film Challenge!  One winning team will get to find clues, knick knacks and think logically to solve brainteasers and attain their freedom in NYC’s most innovative sleuthing game!


About the Challenge

WINTER FILM AWARDS challenges the local NYC community to create a 4-7 minute short film in a specified genre, tagline and prop in just a single gonzo weekend! Thirty teams of the most creative people in the tri-state area have just 48 sleepless hours to decide what they are going to do, write a screenplay, assemble props, costumes and actors, rehearse, shoot, score and edit their film. Students, amateurs, and seasoned industry veterans alike learn the importance of caffeine, team work and time management in successful filmmaking.

About Mission Escape Games

Mission Escape Games is a unique experience in which you and a group of people (friends or complete strangers) strive to beat the clock to obtain freedom from your “puzzle.”  The door’s locked and you need the key.  Pit your will and mind against puzzles, piece together clues and at the end, break out!  To provide a further challenge, you’re timed as well.  Challenge yourself to see if you have what it takes to complete the mission and have fun doing it!

Mission Escape Games has created a unique set of puzzles for you to solve in one hour. Think fast and act faster before your time is up!  Collaborate with friends and strangers. Find clues, knick knacks and think logically to solve brainteasers to attain freedom. Nothing is as it seems so “Escape” from what you thought was normal. You have an hour, so be fast!
