How It Works

Required Elements

Teams will be assigned a character, weapon and location that must be included in their film. All other regular 48 Hour Film Project rules apply.

Horror Genres

Each team will also draw a genre - the catch? They're all horror genres!! Your film must be true to the genre you have selected—and no trading with other teams! You may combine genres (e.g., a science fiction zombie comedy).

Wild Card Genres

After genres have been selected, filmmakers will be given the option to trade in their genre for a Wild Card Genre. Once you switch, you can't switch back!
