Screenings & Awards

All entries (even late films) are guaranteed a screening . Those in attendance will help choose the Audience Award. Videos submitted on time are eligible to win "Best 48 Hour Horror Film of Seattle".

How It Works

Required Elements

Teams will be assigned a character, prop and line of dialogue that must be included in their film. All other regular 48 Hour Film Project rules apply.

Horror Genres

Each team will also draw a genre - the catch? They're all horror genres!! Your film must be true to the genre you have selected—and no trading with other teams! You may combine genres (e.g., a science fiction zombie comedy).

Wild Card Genres

After genres have been selected, filmmakers will be given the option to trade in their genre for a Wild Card Genre. Once you switch, you can't switch back!
