The 48 Hour Film Project

Cinekid 48HFP Genres

Because the Cinekid 48HFP targets a younger audience, we've come up with a list of kid-friendly genres. The genres for our normal 48HFP can be found here.

At the Kickoff Event, each team draws one of these genres from a hat.

  • Adventure
  • Animal/Pet
  • Birthday (see below)
  • Comedy
  • Family
  • Fantasy
  • Holiday
  • Musical or Western
  • Rebel
  • Scary Movie
  • Superhero
  • Wizard/Magic

If you are the lucky team that draws Musical or Western, you have the choice of making either a Musical or a Western. Or a Musical Western. (Or even a Western Musical!)

Your film must be true to the genre you have selected—and no trading with other teams! You may combine genres (e.g., a silent comedic buddy film).


Please note: The song 'Happy Birthday' is copyrighted, and you must purchase the rights to it if you wish to include it or parodies of it in your film.
