The Houston 48 Hour Film Project challenged teams of filmmakers to create a short film from scratch in just a single weekend.  At the start of the weekend, each team drew a genre out of hat and was assigned a character, prop and line of dialogue to include - the rest was up to them.  Join as we celebrate their efforts in the Premiere Screening of this year's entries.
