The 48 Hour Film Project

The Philadelphia 48 Hour Film Project

The 48 Hour Film Project comes to Philadelphia on the weekend of April 24 - 26, 2015. Filmmakers from all over the Philadelphia 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.

Enter today! Space is limited.

This year, teams will be accepted on a first come, first served basis. Once the initial registration is complete, we will add teams to a waiting list.

Early Bird Registration is $140. Teams must register on or before Monday, March 30 to get this special rate. Regular registration is $160. If teams register after Tuesday, April 14 they must pay a rate of $175.

We're very excited to announce that the winner of Best 48HFP Film in Philadelphia this year will be automatically included in the selection of 48HFP films that will screen at the Cannes Film Festival in May 2016.
