About the 48 Hour Film Project

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, all to include in your movie. 48 hours later, the movie must be complete.

The 48 Hour Film Project is the oldest and largest timed film competition in the world, whose mission is to advance filmmaking and promote filmmakers. The tight 48-hour deadline puts the focus squarely on the filmmakers, emphasizing creativity and teamwork and “doing” instead of “talking”.

The emphasis is also on building communities of local creative people – facilitating making new connections, showcasing skills, and celebrating what creativity and teamwork can accomplish in just one weekend.

Since its 2001 launch, the project has become a global cultural phenomenon, with a total of more than 130,000 participants producing nearly 9,000 short films in over 80 cities around the world.
