The 48HFP is the world’s oldest and largest timed filmmaking competition, the granddaddy of them all. If you want the real deal, this is it. The 48HFP is all about creativity and fun. It’s also about community. For years the 48HFP has been helping local creative people connect to make films. These connections go beyond filmmaking: Taking part in the 48 helps people find friends, collaborators, jobs, and even girlfriends & boyfriends! There are even some 48HFP married couples out there!
The 48 Hour Film Project is a wild and sleepless weekend in which you and a team make a movie — write, shoot, and edit — in just 48 hours. On Friday night, teams draw a genre from a hat. They are then given a character, prop, and line to include in their films. On Sunday night, after a wild dash to the drop-off event, the film is turned in — and teams celebrate. The film is then screened at a local theater in front of an audience of filmmakers, friends, and families.
