Filmapalooza Seattle March 1st - 4th, 2017

Registration for the 48HFP's Filmapalooza in Seattle is now officially open!

The Pacific Northwest will see an influx of talented filmmakers in early March when the 48 Hour Film Project's annual awards festival heads to Seattle. We're finalizing plans for four great days of screenings and fun that will culminate in our annual Awards Ceremony. Seattle 48HFP Producer Kirk Nordenstrom is partnering with film organizations across the city and around the state of Washington to roll out the red carpet for our 48HFP filmmakers.

Filmapalooza is open to ALL filmmakers, whether you were a city-winning team or not. With more than 150 films and 400 filmmakers expected from every corner of the globe, make your plans now to be with us.

All of our Filmapalooza screenings will take place at the SIFF Cinema Uptown. SIFF is the perfect partner for the 48HFP. We're inspired by their mission: to create experiences that bring people together to discover extraordinary films from around the world. It is through the art of cinema that we foster a community that is more informed, aware, and alive.

The Maxwell Hotel - Seattle will serve as our official hotel & Filmapalooza Headquarters. The theater and all of our venues are within walking distance of the hotel. We've also negotiated a special rate just for our Filmapalooza participants - check out our Filmapalooza page for more information.
