48HFP at Cannes 2016
The Cannes Film Festival, the world's most prestigious film festival, happens May 11 to 22, 2016 and the 48HFP will be represented with our top films of 2016 at the Short Film Corner. Winning 48 hour filmmakers are coming from around the world to attend their screening.
The Cannes Film Festival (or Festival de Cannes) is one of the most prestigious film festivals in the world. Since its beginnings in 1946, Cannes has birthed such films as Apocalypse Now, La Dolce Vita, and Barton Fink, among scores of other films that are now considered staples among cinéastes around the world.
The 48 Hour Film Project has partnered with Cannes for the last few years, featuring a small selection of the top 48HFP films from around the world as a part of the Short Film Corner. We are proud to continue that tradition this year as we again send some of the top 48HFP films to Cannes this coming May.
Congratulations to everyone involved with the films selected to attend Cannes in 2016. We feel these films not only exemplify the talent of the filmmakers that created them, but also embody the true spirit behind the 48 Hour Film Project, and we are proud to have them represent the 48HFP in Cannes.
