The weekend? August 28 - 30, 2020
The challenge? To make a film in only 48 hours!
year's project has been postponed until August 28-30, 2020. Please join our
mailing list to be the first to find out any future updates.
Filmmakers from all over the Austin area will compete to see who can make the best short film in only 48 hours. The winning film will go up against films from around the world at Filmapalooza 2021 for a chance at the grand prize and an opportunity to screen at the Cannes Film Festival 2021 Short Film Corner.
Please note: The COVID-19 virus (coronavirus) has affected all events around the globe. As we face an unknown time frame for how long closures and quarantines will stay in effect, we have made a commitment to protect the health of our filmmakers and the general public. To help prevent any further outbreak of the virus, the Austin 48HFP has decided to postpone our original June competition dates to August 28-30. If you have any further questions, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We love films and the people who make them, and our hope is to keep everyone safe and happy and making awesome 48-hour films throughout the year!
