The weekend? August 4 - 6, 2017
The challenge? To make a film in only 48 hours!
Filmmakers from all over the Los Angeles, CA area will compete to see who can make the best short film in only 48 hours. The winning film will go up against films from around the world at Filmapalooza 2018 for a chance at the grand prize and an opportunity to screen at the Cannes Film Festival 2018 Short Film Corner.
Not connected to actors??? Not a problem! If you are a Registered Team Leader of the Los Angeles 48 Hour Film Project, we have you covered if you are in need of cast! Over 30 actors with active Casting Frontier will perform one minute monologues for Team Leaders who attend the exclusive casting session.
ACTORS: If you would like to audition, you must have an active Casting Frontier profile and submit yourself to the casting notice. Please note that while we would like to accommodate everyone, space is limited.
OUR FINAL MIXER BEFORE THE FILMMAKING WEEKEND. This networking event
is SUPER important. Not only are we handing out our Filmmaker Swag Bags

to team up with potential cast and crew. All our attendees can get 2
