DEFCON 22 was the first year of our contest. Teams had to script, shoot, edit and submit a short cheesy science fiction film in 48 hours, in the middle of DEFCON. Seven teams entered and four teams submitted final films. William Eubank (director, ‘The Signal’, ‘Love’) and Brian Knappenberger (director, ‘We are Legion’ and ‘The Internet’s Own Boy’) were celebrity guest judges and contributed to the judging of the entries. Brian Knappenberger was kind enough to announce the first winner of the T.D. Francis X-Hour Film Contest at the DEFCON 22 closing ceremony (via video pre-recorded before he had to hope in a cab for the airport).
