April 8-10, 2005

The 48 Hour Film Project's third year in Boston has been a roaring success! There were 58 completed films, 40 of which were on-time. The films were played in ten crowded screenings at the Kendall and Brattle Theaters on April 12th, 13th, 14th, 19th and 20th. The Best of the Boston 48 Hour Film Project were shown at the Good Time Emporium on Wednesday, May 11th. Now seventeen of them are available on DVD.

Thank you to all who participated in this year's 48HFP!
