What is the 48 Hour Film Project? It's a chance to stop talking and start filming! In this international competition, filmmaking teams have just one weekend to make a short film. All creativity writing, shooting, editing and adding a musical soundtrack —must be done in a 48-hour window beginning on a Friday evening at 7 pm and ending Sunday at 7 pm. Just 15 minutes before the starting gun, the teams pull their genre from a hat. Sci-fi, comedy, horror, romance, mystery, superhero - the teams have to be ready for anything! In addition, all teams are given a character, prop and line of dialogue that must appear in each film.
