The inaugural T24 Project held it's kick off on March 5th, 2010. 10 teams tried out but only 4 of them managed to come back on time. A second challenge took place on May 8th under conditions of a raging blizzard. 5 teams tried out, 4 came back with 3 on time but only 2 entries managed to meet the challenge criteria.
Our first challenge asked our filmmakers to create a film about the identity of being a Torontonian and the meaning behind such a term. Our second challenge drew inspiration from a quote of Alfred Hitchcock's, tasking filmmakers to tell us what story is worthy of the cinematic experience.
