The 48 Hour Film Project

The Portland (Maine) 48HFP

The 48 Hour Film Project comes to Portland on the weekend of August 1 - 3, 2014. Filmmakers from all over the Portland 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.

If teams register after Thursday, July 24 they must pay a rate of $175.

Register for the Portland 48 Hour Film Project now!
