Matt joins last year’s winning team including director Motke Dapp, producer David Perry and actor Sara Antonio, among many others, to create a film in just one weekend.
Founded in 2001, The 48 Hour Film Project is a wild and sleepless weekend in which a team makes a movie – write, shoot, edit and score it – in just 48 hours. On Friday night, teams get a character, a prop, a line of dialogue and a genre. Forty-eight hours later, the team submits the finished film. The movies then screen at a local theater, usually in the next week.
The winner of each respective city from over 130 countries around the world meet and screen their films at Filmapalooza, this year being held in Atlanta in March. The 48 Hour Film Project has also partnered with The Cannes Film Festival (or Festival de Cannes) for the last few years. A small selection of the top films from around the world will be screened at one of the most prestigious film festivals in the world as a part of the Short Film Corner.
