Top Films: 2014Watch More Films
In 2015 the 48HFP will visit more than 130 cities where more than 60,000 people will make short films.
Teams and Filmmakers
We've had about 30,000 teams in the Project over the years, and at 13 people per team, that translates to roughly 394,000 people who have answered the call to come on out and make a movie!
Around the World
The Project has truly spread to the four corners of the globe. Filmmakers from Asia, Australia, Europe, the Middle East, Africa and the Americas will compete to see who can make the best short film in a weekend.
One Big Experiment
The 48HFP had it's start as a filmmaking experiment between friends. Who knew back then that it would grow to become a global phenomenon?!?
First Line of Dialogue
In the very first project ever, the required line was: I made you who you are, and I can just as easily break you.
Our smallest team has consisted of one person who sets up the camera then runs around to be on-camera.
Our Largest Team
Our largest team to date was a team from Albuquerque with 116 people and 30 horses!
