About the 48 Hour Film Project
Founded in 2001, The 48 Hour Film Project is a wild and sleepless weekend in which you and a team make a movie – write, shoot, edit and score it – in just 48 hours. On Friday night, you get a character, a prop, a line of dialogue and a genre. 48 hours later, you submit your finished film. The movies will screen at a local theater, usually in the next week.
Filmapalooza is the culmination of all 48 Hour Film Projects from over 130 countries around the world. Filmmakers from each winning city are invited to screen their films at Filmapalooza, and the filmmakers meet (and party) as they compete for the international title of Best Film. 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.
