Filmapalooza 2016 Events

We're Going to Atlanta, Georgia Wednesday, March 2nd - Saturday, March 5th

Filmapalooza 2016 will bring together 48 hour filmmakers from around the world for a crazy exciting weekend of screenings, parties, networking and fun. Join us Wednesday, March 2nd through the final ceremonies the evening of Saturday, March 5th to enjoy all that Atlanta has to offer!! You'll have the time of your life!!

Filmapalooza is visiting Atlanta at a time when Georgia is one of the world's top production juggernauts - where series like Walking Dead, Vampire Diaries, Sleep Hollow, Rectify, and Halt & Catch Fire call home. It's also the location for feature film productions like Ant-Man, Captain America 3, the Hunger Games and Divergent series, the last two Fast & Furious installments, as well as the latest features starring Tom Cruise, Michael Keaton, Adam Sandler, and Ben Affleck.

Screenings & Awards

Filmapalooza will be packed with screenings featuring city winning films from all of our 2015 stops around the world. The awards ceremony will follow the final screening on Saturday - including Best Film of City trophies as well as international awards.

By the end of Saturday night, we'll have announced our Grand Champion, the global winner of Best 48 Hour Film of 2015. Then join us for the closing night Awards Party to celebrate all night long with all of your new 48 friends.

Locations & Schedule

We're still fine-tuning the details on the accommodations and event line-up. More information will be posted on this page as soon as it's available.

NOTE We're shifting to a Wednesday to Saturday schedule this year so you'll have time to get back home on Sunday before the week starts. Screenings start the afternoon of Wednesday the 2nd. Be sure to come then and stay through the evening of Saturday the 5th, so that you can attend the awards ceremony and wrap party.
