Genre Requirement 48 Hour Film Horror Project
At the kickoff event each team draws a genre from a hat.
The catch? They're all horror genres. Your film must be true to the genre you have selected—and no trading with other teams!
Got it all? Well, be warned... We switch up the options each year - just to keep you on your toes!!

In addition to drawing a genre, each team will be required to include an assigned character, prop and line of dialogue at the Kickoff Event.
You may combine genres (e.g., a silent comedic buddy film) - however, your official assigned genre must be clearly represented in the mix.
Adherence to Assignment
Did you know judges base part of their scores on a film’s adherence to assignment? This refers to the genre and required elements.
