Houston, Texas October 2 - 4, 2020

Get Ready for An Amazing Challenge!

The weekend? October 2 - 4, 2020

The challenge? To make a film in only 48 hours! (while staying safe during a global pandemic)

Filmmakers from all over the Houston, TX 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.

This year, the 48 Hour Film Project is taking Texas by storm!  Four cities - Houston, Austin, Dallas and San Antonio - are facing the 2020 pandemonium together with a state-wide virtual filmmaking extravaganza, sharing events, filmmaking weekend and screenings! Each city will still have its own winner of Best Film.

The safety of our participants is paramount, so we’re taking our events online to keep everyone healthy while sparking creativity from within your own homes.
