When to Submit 48 Hour Film Project

The Team Leader Agreement must be brought to the Kickoff Event. The rest are all due at the Dropoff Event, along with your film - in the official envelope provided for you at the Kickoff Event. And some can even be completed online!!

We want to know the details—what happened during your wild weekend of moviemaking?

Waiver and Release Form 1 per cast/crew, due at Dropoff

This is a combined Talent Release and Liability Waiver Form, meaning there's one less form you have to keep track of. * All cast and crew must sign. * Each team member must sign a separate form. * Remember, this form helps protect you, the team leader, as well as the Project.

Team Checklist

Plan Ahead

All creative work must be done during the official filmmaking period; however, you can get some of the tedious paperwork done ahead of time.

Waiver and Release Forms

Get your team members to sign releases ahead of time - then you don't have to worry with it during crunch time.

Note: This form helps protect you, the team leader, as well as the 48HFP.

Local Musicians

Some local musicians, bands & composers may be willing to let you use their work in your film because it creates additional exposure for their talents.

Creative Commons

You may use music or materials that fall under the Attribution license. This is the only CC lisense that meets the 48HFP conditions.

Note: Creative Commons licenses that are either Non-Commercial or Sharealike are NOT compatible with the 48HFP's Team Leader's Agreement and therefore can NOT be used.

Scout Locations

You are allowed to scout possible locations in advance. This will also come in handy for creating your storyline. It's easier to write the script when you know what you have available.

Filming Permits

The 48HFP does not require you obtain permits for filming; however, it's possible your city may require permits for certain locations.

Hint: Your local film commission is a good resource to learn what is and isn't permitted in your city.

These documents are strictly to be used for films made for the 48 Hour Film Project.
