The weekend? October 5 - 7, 2018
The challenge? To make a horror film in only 48 hours!
Do you like to be scared? Do you love Hitchcock? Bring on the fake blood and the rumbling undercurrent sound effect and get ready for a weekend you won't forget.
Filmmakers from all over the Houston, TX area will compete to see who can make the best horror short film in only 48 hours. The winning film will screen at Filmapalooza 2019.

The Houston Film Commission hosts a FREE short film screening the First Thursday of each month. The screenings are generally followed by a talkback with the filmmakers. And this is a great place to meet other members of the local film community and find folks to collaborate with.
Houston 48HFP Producer Laura Schlecht will be in attendance at this event. So if you have any questions about the Horror 48HFP be sure to find her there. And if you're looking for more folks to round out your team, this is a great event to meet interested parties.
Be sure to
arrive by 8 - the first part of the evening is typically open
meet-n-greet before the films start. No time for dinner first? No
worries, Cafe Brasil has a fantastic menu so you can wine and dine while
making new friends!!
Please note that we are meeting in the upstairs room of Rudyard's. Representatives from each team will gather to draw their genre and learn this year's prop, character & line dialogue.
The Dropoff event is open to the full team. And even if you didn't
participate this year, you're still welcome to come join in on the fun!!
Join us to help cheer on our weary 48 hour filmmakers as they cross the finish line with their brand new cinematic masterpieces!! Then stick around to find out how the weekend went for everyone and trade "war stories".
Bring your appetite with you because Jax has a full menu and bar. So sit back with a drink and good food while comparing the weekend with your fellow weekend film warriors!!
Please note that we will be accepting films in the event room
located inside Jax Grill (on Shepherd just south of I-10). Once you
enter the restaurant, you should see the restroom entrance on opposite
wall. Go around the corner just past that and the event room will be on
Here are some of the teams that will be making a short film for Houston in only 48 hours.
