Can the Team Leader transfer his/her Free Festival Badge?

Yes, if the Team Leader cannot attend, he/she may transfer the badge to a teammate. Just provide the special code to the teammate.

Only one Free Festival Badge per team.

Do winning team members get a discount?

Yes, the best pricing is for the winning teams. They receive a bigger discount than the regular 48HFP and a significant discount compared to the regular price.

The other way to save is purchase your pass early.

When will my film screen?

City winning films will screen on Thursday and Friday, March 7 & 8.

An exact schedule will be announced no later than February 1.

What is included with the Festival Badge?

It is a packed, fun-filled four days! With the Festival Badge, you get access to Filmapalooza events including:

  • Opening Night Screening
  • Screenings of the 2018 city winning 48 hour films!
  • Social and networking events: meet filmmakers from around the world!
  • Filmmaking Workshops
  • Virtual Reality Presentations
  • The Best of 2018 48HFP Screening & Awards Ceremony

Can you buy tickets to individual events/screenings?

Possibly. First priority is given to Badge holders.

We hope to announce by February if there are enough tickets available to sell on an individual event basis.

Can you buy a ticket to the Best of 48HFP Screening/Awards?

Again, possibly. It depends on availability.

The only way to ensure admittance to all events is by purchasing a festival pass.

Is there an official Filmapalooza Hotel?

We are working on finalizing the details of this.
