How to Enter
In 2013, the Project will visit 120 cities around the world—with thousands of filmmaking teams taking part.
The only question is:
Do you have what it takes to make one of the
Best 48 Hour films of the year?
Now in its 13th year, the 48 Hour Film Project is the ultimate filmmaking challenge. Making a film isn't so hard, is it? Here's the catch—you've got to do it all (and we mean all) in just 48 hours! To make things interesting and to keep everyone honest, there's a random drawing just prior to the start of each competition, where each film team will select a genre for its film. In addition, we will announce a character, prop and line of dialogue that must appear in each film. You are responsible for putting together your own cast and crew, and getting equipment and anything else you need to make a film/video. Because we guarantee a screening to all teams that submit an on-time film, we limit the number of teams that participate in each city.
Teams are admitted on a first-come, first-served basis—so register early. Whether you're a seasoned professional or just getting started, this is the contest for you. It's easy to enter.
