As part of Jasper's mission to cultivate the arts in Columbia, we decided that something needed to exist here, in our city, that specifically brought Columbia filmmakers together to work on one singular project. With that goal in mind, the Second Act Film Festival was born.

The festival takes place on October 10th, 2013 at Tapp's Arts Center in Columbia, SC.

The Second Act Film Festival exists in two parts. The first is a film project which was created to challenge SC filmmakers with a unique and creative goal. The second part is the film festival itself. A one-night screening of all the films created by the filmmakers chosen by a panel of experts to participate in the project.

In early August of this year, the call was put out to SC filmmakers to take part in the 2nd Act Film Fest. This past week, ten filmmakers were chosen to participate. We gave them the first and last pages of a short film script that was written with the help of professional author Janna McMahan(1st and 3rd acts, respectively). All the filmmakers received the exact same script pages. It then became their job to write the second act and make the movie. All films will be screened at the Tapp's Arts Center for the festival on October 10th, 2013. All films will be compiled into a single DVD. And all scripts will be bound and published and submitted to the Library of Congress.

Funds raised from our campaign will be used to offset the cost of putting on the festival itself. These costs include renting the facility, printing, equipment rental, advertising, and other minor miscellaneous costs.

Risks and challenges

The overall goal of the Second Act Film Festival is to introduce the filmmaking talent that exists in our state to the arts community in Columbia. It allows us to not only offer a creative challenge to an undervalued area of the arts in our state, but it also offers the opportunity to bring in other artistic disciplines. Local artists from many disciplines will be offering their talents in making the Second Act Film Festival a truly diverse event.

Our challenges with a first time festival/project is participation, from filmmakers and the community. The main charge once our campaign is successfully funded is to produce the highest quality exhibition of local filmmaking talent possible.
