The legend calls it “the first(and hopefully last) Corman Quarantine Film Festival” on his Instagram Page. He asks to publish the video using the hashtag #CormanChallenge so that he can look through it, and the due date is two weeks from now.

With the cancelling of the Cannes Film Festival 2020 the quarantine film festival introduced by Corman is of great reilef for the movie buffs.

The rules of this competition are simple. The film must be under 2 minutes, and the cast should be within the family inside your house. No outdoor shots or endangering anyone is allowed. It can be shot on your phone and shoot with available light inside your home.
