Fortnite: Make A Short Film, And It Could Be Shown At Risky Reels In-Game

Become a star director in the world of Epic's shooter.


Fortnite season 5 is almost here, but no superhero franchise is complete without a big-budget blockbuster motion picture. To that end, Epic is holding a contest for aspiring filmmakers to cut together their own masterpiece, with some notoriety and virtual bucks on the line.

The fan films must be at least one minute in length, and no longer than five minutes. They'll be judged on creativity, mastery of the Replay tools, and "Fortnite-ness"--the quality of capturing the tone of Fortnite. You can only use your own original gameplay and royalty-free audio, and no voice-over narrative or on-screen text is allowed. Submissions should include the hashtag #FortniteBlockbuster. They're due by July 11 at 11:59 ET.
