Filmapalooza 2018 Events

Paris, France March 6 - March 9, 2018

Parlez-vous Filmapalooza? Filmapalooza 2018 brought together 48 hour participants in the City of Light to see films, attend workshops, network and to be part of an amazing gathering of creative filmmakers and teams. This was the 48HFP's first time to hold Filmapalooza in an international location.

Awards Ceremony

Filmapalooza culminated with our spectacular Awards Ceremony which took place in the beautiful and historic Hotel de Ville where hundreds of filmmakers received their city winning trophies and we announced the grand prize winner.

Another first for Filmapalooza was the introduction of the Creative Inspiration Award which honors a writer-director whose work has served as inspriation for emerging filmmakers to pursue their passion. Our inaugural recipient was Jean-Pierre Jeunet whose films include Delicatessen, The City of Lost Children, and Amélie.
