Our judges are currently deliberating on the 2022 winners. Awards will be determined for a number of categories, including Best Film, which will go on to represent Austin, TX at Filmapalooza 2023 and vie for Best 48HFP Film of 2022.
Never heard of a Film de Femme? That's because we invented it! This genre is specifically designed by the 48HFP to encourage strong roles for females in 48HFP films. A Film de Femme is a film featuring one or more strong female characters. Romantic comedies or chick flicks are included in this genre, but are only a subset.
What's a strong female character? Think Taraji P. Henson, Janelle Monae, and Octavia Spencer in "Hidden Figures," Jennifer Lawrence in "The Hunger Games," and Moana in Disney's "Moana." Smart and complicated... and contrary to public opinion, strong women characters are not required to kill someone!
Ten teams stepped up to the challenge and made a Film de Femme short outta nuthin' in just 48 hours. Given a pair of SubGenres they may have never heard of before, a Prop, a Character, a Line of Dialog and only two days to come up with a piece of entertainment (that is actually entertaining), you just can't imagine the ATOMIC power of such hyper-creativity! Now... here's the proof!
Today’s issues make this a very timely topic. Stories in this category have the power to influence future creatives. Come see the Premiere Screenings for the Austin 48 Hour Film de Femme Project at AFS Cinema.
Tickets are $15 online until the day of and $20 at the door, with Eventbrite fees absorbed (no surprises for you).
Team Leads get 2 Comps each!
