The Frantic Breeze Fast Film Competition took place over 72 hours during the summer of 2022. Participating teams were asked to create 4 - 7 minute films in 3 days using 3 essential elements. These elements, revealed on the first day of the competition, were based on Port Moody themes, locations, history and art.
