The weekend? May 4 - 6, 2018
The challenge? To make a film in only 48 hours!
Filmmakers from all over the Washington, 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 at Filmapalooza 2019 for a chance at the grand prize and an opportunity to screen at the Cannes Film Festival 2019 Short Film Corner.
Join us Sunday April 22nd for a special DC 48 Hour screening and team build mixer event. We will be showing 10 outstanding short films from the 2017 DC 48 Hour Film competitions, including both city winners. This event is also be a mixer and will be a great opportunity to meet team leaders, find cast and crew, or join a team. There will be a Q & A with filmmakers after the screening, which will be a great opportunity to hear first hand about the 48 hour filmmaking experience.
Here are some of the teams that will be making a short film for Washington in only 48 hours.
In May of 2001, Mark Ruppert (Creator/ Executive Producer), Liz Langston (Co-Founder/ Executive Producer) and Christina Ruppert (Director of Operations) were all part of the team The Big Ouch. It was one of 10 teams in the inaugural 48 Hour Film Project and the required prop was a severed body part.
