The weekend? June 21 - 23, 2019
The challenge? To make a film in only 48 hours!
Filmmakers from all over the Greensboro, NC 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.
Representatives from each team will gather to draw their teams' genres and to find out what the required prop, character, and line of dialogue will be. It's an exciting event as the energy and creativity build up to kick off a great weekend of filmmaking!
After a very busy weekend, filmmakers will bring in their completed films. The goal: Arrive before 7:30 p.m. with the finished film. Late films will still be screened, but not judged. Emotions range from satisfaction, excitement, accomplishment to defeat, frustration, and anguish. The best feeling? Knowing you did your best, and had fun, regardless of the outcome.
See the award-winning films made the weekend of June 21-23! Following the screening, the judges' awards will be announced in Oscar style. It's a fun and exciting evening for filmmakers and the audience that loves short films!
Here are some of the teams that will be making a short film for Greensboro in only 48 hours.
