Registration Is Open For The Online Four Points Film Project! (Nov 13th-16th)Wednesday, September 9, 2020


Registration is now open for the 48 Hour Film Project's official online-only global filmmaking challenge, the Four Points Film Project (4PFP). Sign up your team at

This year's 4PFP is November 13th-16th. It's similar to the flagship 48 Hour Film Project, except you'll get a total of 77 hours to write, produce, edit, and submit your short film. Four Points is also open to filmmakers all around the world, regardless of whether or not you live in or near one of our regular 48HFP tour locations.

Similar to the regular 48, you will be assigned two random genres and you must shoot your film using either, or both, of the genres. Each time zone will be assigned its own set of elements - character, prop and line of dialogue. Instructions on how to upload your finished film will be sent upon registration.

The 4PFP films are all judged by a panel of film professionals, and the top 4PFP film will screen at both Filmapalooza 2021 and the Cannes Film Festival 2021 Short Film Corner. Additionally the top 15 films will be made available online where the general public will vote for the winner of Audience Favorite, who will also screen at Filmapalooza 2021. In addition, there will be $4000 USD in prizes.

The best time to register for the Four Points is before October 19th, so you can take advantage of the Early Bird discount. Get the full details about the competition and registration info at
