Filmmakers from all over the Reno, NV area will compete to see who can make the best short film in only 48 hours.

All Welcome! First-timer to Hobbyists to Amateurs to Professionals!
Take your filmmaking to the NEXT LEVEL!
Wherever you are currently in your filmmaking journey, the 48 Hour Film Project is a valuable next step!
•. Make your FIRST film... the first of many!
•. Create a film (or another film!) for your reel
• Practice new techniques -- in a low-risk setting
•. Find new filmmaking partners to work with, beginning on a (very!) short-term basis
• Create work to help show off your skills to find that next job!
Hosted by Reno's very own Abbey West Recording, we will be offering a free audio class that will help you get the cleanest audio possible while on set. Audio is a very big part of film and we will cover the basics, in this class. If you want a more advanced class please reach out to Ivey Smith who will set up a time when you can get the training that you are looking for. Space is limited so please RSVP through text or email.
Are you an actor looking to practice your craft or expand your reel, we invite you to auditions for the 48 Hour Film Project! Film makers will need your help to make a work of art!!!! Get to know Reno's film makers who knows they may have a project for you in the future!
Or are you a filmmaker with a team, but no one on your team can put on a convincing show? We invite you to our Actor's auditions for Reno's 48 Hour film Project!!! Find your actors before kickoff, get to know them as people before you spend a full weekend with them!
Don't want to deal with the majority of the Paperwork during the competition? We invite team leaders/ and team members to join us. Malevolent Mouse Productions will help you get everything ready for next weekend, so you can focus on the fun stuff during our filming weekend. We highly recommend this workshop for any teams/ team leaders who are new to the 48 or who do not have experience with film paperwork. The paperwork can be a little overwhelming.
