There are some great updates about plans for Filmapalooza in Orlando, just in time for Christmas!

This holiday season, you just may want to give yourself the best present ever by registering to join us (and several hundred filmmakers from around the world) down in sunny Orlando.

Stuff your stocking at:

Filmapalooza is March 6th - 9th, 2019 in Orlando, Florida.


Official Hotel

The official hotel of this year's Filmapalooza is the Marriott Downtown Orlando. Filmapalooza attendees receive a discounted rate of just $150 per night, and can take a free five minute bus ride directly from our hotel to the screening venue!

On top of the discount, many Filmapalooza events happen in or around the official hotel, which is why we encourage you to stay there if you'll be joining us. Make sure you book your room by February 15th to take advantage of the discounted rate.




The official screening venue of all of the top 48HFP and genre films from our 2018 tour will be the Cobb Plaza Cinema in downtown Orlando. Just a five minute (free) bus ride from the official hotel, Cobb Plaza Cinema features luxury leather stadium seating, digital surround sound, and a full food menu including beer & wine, making it the perfect place to relax while you watch our Best 48HFP Film winners from around the world!

For our 'Best of Filmapalooza' screening and Awards Ceremony, we'll be at the Walt Disney Ampitheatre at Lake Eola Park, a beautiful outdoor ampitheatre in the heart of downtown Orlando. Every city winner will receive their official Best Film trophy at this celebrated lakefront theatre. This is where we'll also screen the Best of the Best films as chosen by our panel of international judges, and announce all of our global award winners, including the 2018 Global Grand Champion!





A tentative schedule has been posted at

This year's schedule includes a welcome reception, opening night party, pub crawl, team leader networking event, filmmaking workshops, a special lunch with the 48HFP founders, and of course all of our screenings and awards ceremony.
