Nobo Na 48? Ban Kuminsá

Welcome to the 48HFP

Are you a director, actor, editor, shooter, or audio ninja just itching to practice your craft? Professionals, pre-professionals or hobbyists - this is what you have been waiting for.

The 48 Hour Film Project is an opportunity for filmmakers of all levels to practice your craft - to make a film in a weekend and have it screen before an audience at your local theater.

How It Works

It sounds simple:  Make a film in 48 hours - 2 days - one weekend. Here’s the catch - you don’t know the genre of your film until right before the clock starts ticking!

First begin putting a team together and register for the 48HFP in your city.

Next after registering, you will receive a series of emails with information and tips for a successful event.  During the lead up to the Project, teams recruit their cast and crew, scout locations and pull their gear together - putting everything in place for the filmmaking weekend.


Friday Night Kickoff

The 48 Hour Film Project weekend starts on a Friday night with the Kickoff Event for your city. At the Kickoff:

  • Each team receives the genre for its film in a random drawing
  • Then the required elements are announced - a character, a prop and a line of dialogue - each of which must appear in all films

Then it is off to the races!!  Filmmakers have just 48 hours to write, shoot and edit their film.

Film Weekend: 48 Hours of Non-Stop Action

Most teams schedule their weekend like this:

  • Friday Night: Writing the script, gathering costumes and props
  • Saturday: Production - this is the shoot
  • Sunday: Editing and Dropoff - it’s time to complete your film as the minutes tick down

Sunday Night Dropoff

At the Dropoff Event, teams submit their film along with the required paperwork.  But don’t be late!  One minute late is too late to be eligible for awards - but all films are screened.

Premiere Screening: Your Film on the Big Screen

The culmination of all your hard work is a screening of your film at a local theater.  All submitted films (both late and on-time) will be screened!
