Inside the Final Cut Film Fest

Wilmington is no stranger to film crews, but it's not often that more than a dozen of them descend on the area at once. And that's exactly what will happen this weekend , when the Final Cut Film Festival sends its many crews of determined filmmakers out into the region. Their mission: come back with a short film, entirely shot and edited, in twenty-four hours. WHQR's Megan Williams sits down with the festival's director, Matt Mizell.

Wilmington, NC, Oct. 21, 2005 – Matt Mizell is the director of the Final Cut Film Festival, which grew out of the formerly biannual One-Take Festival. Final Cut allows teams to edit their footage, One Take does not.
