The 48 Hour Film Project

The Des Moines 48 Hour Film Project

Exhausted Des Moines Teams Submit Films

Filmmaking teams from throughout the Des Moines area successfully completed a weekend of filmmaking. Films were due on Sunday, July 27 and the last few minutes before the deadline saw filmmakers, operating on little sleep and lots of adrenaline, rushing to get their films in on time.

All of the films that were submitted on Sunday night will screen on the dates below. Come see what Des Moines area filmmakers can do!
