The weekend? May 31 - June 2, 2019
The challenge? To make a film in only 48 hours!
Filmmakers from all over the Cincinnati, OH 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 2020 for a chance at the grand prize and an opportunity to screen at the Cannes Film Festival 2020 Short Film Corner.
Check out our Facebook page for a Facebook Live video update from the producers of the Cincinnati 48 Hour Film Project!
We'll introduce you to the newest member of the team, Vernard Fields (for those that don't already know him!), and Vernard will fill everyone in on some of the upcoming events we have planned leading up to our filmmaking weekend of May 31st - June 2nd. We will also take questions about rules, genres, or general filmmaking tips so you can better prepare for your 48HFP weekend!
See the top 10 films from this year's 48 Hour Film Project, and then find out all of this year's winning films! Nominees will be announced several days before the screening. We'll screen the top films, and then the Awards Ceremony will take place immediately following, right in the theatre auditorium. Stay afterwords for the wrap party to celebrate this year's filmmakers (appetizers provided, cash bar available at the Esquire concession stand). Our top film will move on to Filmapalooza, and even have a shot at screening at Cannes Film Festival!
Here are some of the teams that will be making a short film for Cincinnati in only 48 hours.
