It's Finally Here...

Filmmakers are taking over Lynchburg and turning it into movie-making madness for 48 hours! Teams of filmmakers have a single weekend - this one - to write, shoot and edit their short films! All completed entries will be unveiled on the big screen, at our premiere screenings.

Here are some important notes for 48HFP filmmakers:

  • Elements: The required elements for Lynchburg will be listed on this page after kickoff.
  • Media: You must submit your film according to the formats listed lower on this page.
