Join us this Sunday September 23rd for a special DC 48 Hour screening and team build mixer event at the Evening Star Cafe in Alexandria VA from 5:30pm - 8pm. We will be showing 8 outstanding short films from previous competitions. This is also a mixer event and will be a great opportunity to meet team leaders, find cast and crew, or join a team. There will be a Q & A with filmmakers after the screening, which will be a great opportunity to hear first hand about the 48 hour filmmaking experience.
This is a Free Screening Event!
Here are some of the teams that will be making a short film for Washington in only 48 hours.
In May of 2001, Mark Ruppert (Creator/ Executive Producer), Liz Langston (Co-Founder/ Executive Producer) and Christina Ruppert (Director of Operations) were all part of the team The Big Ouch. It was one of 10 teams in the inaugural 48 Hour Film Project and the required prop was a severed body part.
