The 48 Hour Film Project

The Washington DC 48 Hour Film Project

The 48 Hour Film Project comes to Washington DC on the weekend of May 1 - 3, 2015. Filmmakers from all over the DC area 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.

Enter today! Space is limited.

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

Regular registration is $160. If teams register after Tuesday, April 21 they must pay a rate of $175.

Register for the Washington DC 48 Hour Film Project now!
