Around the World November 8 - 11, 2019


Get Ready for a Global Challenge!

The weekend? November 8 - 11, 2019

The challenge? To make a film in a single weekend!

Filmmakers from all over the world will compete to see who can make the best short film in only three days. The 4PFP is an online contest which follows the same basic idea of the 48HFP - write, produce, and edit a short film in just a weekend using an assigned genre and three elements which are announced via email at the start of the weekend.

The 4PFP films are all judged by a panel of film professionals, and the top 4PFP film will be awarded $3000 USD and screen at both Filmapalooza 2020 and the Cannes Film Festival 2020 Short Film Corner. Additionally the top 15 films will be made available online where the general public will vote for the winner of Audience Favorite, who will recieve $1000 USD and also screen at Filmapalooza 2020.

Make a Film in THREE Days!

The Four Points Film Project competition weekend begins at 7:00 PM your local time on Friday and concludes on Monday at midnight. That gives your team 77 hours to write, shoot, edit, score and submit your short film. You will be assigned two random genres and you must shoot your film using either, or both, of the genres. Each time zone will be assigned its own set of elements - character, prop and line of dialogue. All films will be submitted online and instructions will be provided to your team upon registration.
