The weekend? May 5 - 7, 2023
The challenge? To make a film in only 48 hours!
Filmmakers from all over the Washington, DC area will compete to see who can make the best short film in only 48 hours.

All Welcome! First-timer to Hobbyists to Amateurs to Professionals!
Take your filmmaking to the NEXT LEVEL!
Wherever you are currently in your filmmaking journey, the 48 Hour Film Project is a valuable next step!
•. Make your FIRST film... the first of many!
•. Create a film (or another film!) for your reel
• Practice new techniques -- in a low-risk setting
•. Find new filmmaking partners to work with, beginning on a (very!) short-term basis
• Create work to help show off your skills to find that next job!
We've partnered to TIVA to present this panel of award-winning 48 Hour Filmmakers!
Have you ever thought about forming a team and being a part of the 48-Hour Film Festival? Have you entered over the years and had things go wonderfully right or have you encountered some learning lessons and production challenges? What are the successful approaches to bringing it all together? How have the veterans and winners of this collaborative event made it work? The secrets will be told! Come to an insightful "behind-the-Scenes" panel of 48-hour Film Festival veterans who will show portions of completed work (~2:00) and share insights on how to approach the 48-hour experience, tips to create team work, and other stories from the front line.

Here are some of the teams that will be making a short film.
In May of 2001, Mark Ruppert (Creator/ Executive Producer), Liz Langston (Co-Founder/ Executive Producer) and Christina Ruppert (Director of Operations) were all part of the team The Big Ouch. It was one of 10 teams in the inaugural 48 Hour Film Project and the required prop was a severed body part.
