Genre Requirement 48 Hour Film Project

At the Kickoff Event each team is assigned TWO genres.

There are 30 different genres—ranging from the classic (e.g., Comedy, Drama) to the more specialized (e.g., Fish Out of Water, Silent Film).  At the Kickoff Event each team will be assigned two genres - one from Group #1 and one from Group #2 as listed below. Your film must be true to one of the genres you are assigned.  It might be your team’s most difficult decision of the weekend.

You may be creative and combine genres, provided that one of your assigned genres is clearly present.  And remember: no trading with other teams!

Got it all? Well, be warned... We switch up the options each year - just to keep you on your toes!!

Combining Genres

You may combine genres (e.g., a silent comedic buddy film) - however, your official assigned genre must be clearly represented in the mix.

Adherence to Assignment

Did you know judges base part of their scores on a film’s adherence to assignment? This refers to the genre and required elements.
