Filming took place on Friday, May 11th, 2018 in Abbotsford, BC over the course of 4 hours.
From the official website:
A selection of Vancouver’s boldest filmmakers have accepted our challenge to create a new short film, world premiere it for an audience and then ceremonially wipe it from existence.
Why would we destroy these films?
As people continue to debate the potential "death of cinema", this is an opportune time to publicly execute a handful of creations and witness the effects the act has on both artists and audiences. Could it be that these films actually become more influential in extinction than if they’d been left to wither for eternity on Vimeo?
By taking the drastic measures of creating these single-use films, Self-Destructive Cinema restores the essentialness and vitality of the cinematic experience. This is not work that viewers can catch up with at their own convenience. It exists for an extremely finite period and demands that it be experienced communally and critically.
