Hitchcock, Spielberg, Coppola, You!

Are you
- a professional filmmaker,
- someone looking to enter the film and video industry
- or even a hobbyist?

The 48 Hour Film Project is open to all.

In this adenaline filled competition you have one weekend to make a short film. Your film will premiere on the big screen for a live theater audience and be seen by top judges. Winners are invited to Filmapalooza - our international film festival - and top films are screened at the Cannes Short Film Corner.
