New To The 48? Get Started

48 Hour Film Project for Newbies

Are you ready for a weekend of adrenaline, fun and creativity?

We promise, you will remember this weekend for the rest of your life. The 48 Hour Film Project is really quite simple. It's a test of your team's ability to work together to make a movie in only 48 hours. When it's done, you're going to feel great. Then you and your team will celebrate by watching your film on the big screen.

You can do it!

Here are the steps...

  • Find your city and filming weekend!
  • Read the Rules.
  • Sign Up!
  • Assemble your Team.

Need help finding team members? We offer Meet-n-Greets and an Online Volunteer DB.

As soon as you sign up, we will start sending you helpful emails that will give you pointers and all the information you need for the weekend.


Are you ready? OK...
