Our judges are currently deliberating on the 2019 winners. Awards will be determined for a number of categories, including Best Film, which will go on to represent Asheville, NC at Filmapalooza 2020 and vie for Best 48HFP Film of 2019.
Filmmakers from all over the Asheville, NC competed to see who could make the best short film in only 48 hours. The judges and audience have decided on the winning films we will screen July 18 at Asheville Pizza & Brewing, Merrimon Avenue. Only one film will win Best Film and compete for the top prize at Filmapalooza 2020, the festival's annual awards show. The Asheville "Best Film" winner will also have a chance at screening in the 2020 Cannes Film Festival.
Happening on an international level, the 48HFP asks participants to team up and create a short film in a mere two days, and the deadline is strictly enforced. Films that are finished even one minute past the deadline are disqualified from the competition. A panel of judges choose the winners, who attend in Academy Awards style, the "Best Of" awards and screening.
