The weekend? July 28 - 30, 2017
The challenge? To make a film in only 48 hours!
Filmmakers from all over the New Haven, CT 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.
It's summer time now. So that means warm summer nights are coming as well as the New Haven 48 Hour Film Project. So let's have some fun!
On the 2nd & 4th Monday nights of June/July/ August the #NHV48HFP will sponsor a movie night in the patio are of The Outer Space / The Ballroom. Each film won't start till trivia is done & it's dark out back. The movie will be a surprise - but it will start with a preview of an award winning 48 hour film from New Haven's past!
We will be hanging around on these Mondays to have mix & mingle happy hours first for those of you trying to find a team or for anyone who wants some more information about the New Haven 48 Hour Film Project! Then we will test our minds with trivia before we venture to the patio to see what feature awaits us on the screen!
No cover charge for these nights & always weather permitting!
We will be having our annual week of shooting last minute tips night! Join us at our Sponsors Baobab Tree Studios where we will go over helpful hints to have a great 48 weekend! We will go over rules, answer questions, and offer all the tips & hints that we can!
You will also be able to get a tour of Baobab Tree Studios and hear about the special prize they are offering to the #NHV48HFP this year!
