The weekend? June 9 - 11, 2017
The challenge? To make a film in only 48 hours!
Filmmakers from all over the Houston, TX 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 at Filmapalooza 2018 for a chance at the grand prize and an opportunity to screen at the Cannes Film Festival 2018, Court Métrage.
Join us for this FREE event to check out some great short films!! It's
also your chance to learn more about the Houston 48HFP and the plans for
this year!! Already down for participating? This is a great place to
scope out potential team members!!
We'll be showing a couple of our great films created for the Houston 48HFP 2016 with team members in attendance to answer any questions you have about their films.
Don't miss this opportunity to meet other filmmakers and artists that you may want to work with the weekend of Houston's 48HFP, June 9 - 11, when you'll compete to see who can make the best short film in only 48 hours!
If you have fun at this event, you'll want to come back again next month. The Houston Film Commission shares a great selection of short films on the First Thursday of each month - usually followed by a Q&A with the filmmakers. This is a great resource if you want to learn more about the filmmaking experience or network with your artistic community!!
To get the creative juices flowing in preparation for our filmmaking
weekend, we're going to a speed run of the 48HFP in only 48 minutes -
minus the filming and editing, that is!! We'll break you up into teams
and give you a set of required elements. Then you and your group have
less than hour to come up with a play to perform. Don't worry, we'll
let you use your script.
Here are some of the teams that will be making a short film for Houston in only 48 hours.
