The 48 Hour Film Project

The Boston 48 Hour Film Project

The 48 Hour Film Project comes to Boston on the weekend of May 1st through May 3rd. Filmmakers from all over New England will compete to see who can make the best short film in only 48 hours. The winning film will go up against films from around the world at Filmapalooza, our end-of-year event.

No more slots are available for the Boston 48HFP, but please sign up for our waiting list. If teams drop out, we will invite teams from the waiting list.

Also, you can join a team by giving your information to the Boston team leaders through our website or coming to one of our meet and greets (information below).
