The 48 Hour Film Project

The Boston 48 Hour Film Project

The 48 Hour Film Project comes to Boston on the weekend of May 2nd through May 4th. 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.

Enter today! Space is limited.

Teams are accepted on a first come, first served basis. Once the initial registration is complete, we will add teams to a waiting list.

Registration is $160. If teams register after Tuesday, April 22nd, they must pay a rate of $175.

Register for the Boston 48HFP now!
