A Macabre Weekend of Filmmaking Fun

The 48 Hour Film Horror Project is a creative contest where teams of filmmakers create a horror film in a single weekend. Teams will be given certain elements to incorporate into their short film and 48 hours - the rest is up to them.

Horror Film Project: How Does It Work?

The 48 Hour Film Horror Project is very similar to the standard 48HFP - the biggest difference being that everyone will be making a short horror film.

The project weekend will kickoff on a Friday evening and all films are due back Sunday evening. Filmmakers and their friends/family will be able to help to celebrate their accomplishments via a screening soon to follow.

All creative work for the video must be done in the official 48 hour time frame. Films must be 4 - 7 minutes long with an additional minute allowed for credits.
