48HFP World Tour: A Showcase Of 48HFP Events In Different Cities Across The GlobeFriday, September 6, 2019


One of the really cool things about the 48 Hour Film Project is that it's a GLOBAL competition. In each of the over 120 cities around the world on our tour list, the filmmaking rules and basics of the competition are the same. But at the same time, the way that each city's events are run are specific to the culture and personality of their individual filmmaking communities, which creates a truly unique experience for each city.

Whether it's selling t-shirts, producing stylish red carpet events, or just how they get the word out about their competition, every location puts their own little spin on what the 48HFP means to them. So we thought it would be fun to give you a quick peek at how different 48HFP events are run in some of our various cities all over the world.
