The weekend? May 31 - June 2, 2019
The challenge? To make a film in only 48 hours!
Filmmakers from all over the Austin, TX 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 2020 for a chance at the grand prize and an opportunity to screen at the Cannes Film Festival 2020 Short Film Corner.
Each team sends TWO representatives to hear the rules, draw the team genre and reveal the three elements (Prop, Line, Character).
Please arrive EARLY (doors open at 5:30pm) with your SIGNED Team Leader Agreement. Our presentation begins at 6pm.
Bring all signed paperwork (if in doubt, GET IT IN WRITING) and two copies of your finished film. Look for the lady in the blue sparkly hat! All submitted films will be screened for the public, but only those that make it by 7:30pm will be eligible for judging.
Once your film is submitted, grab a drink, maybe something from the food truck and RELAX in the beautiful outdoor seating area -- maybe you'll see a deer walk by!
Here are some of the teams that will be making a short film for Austin in only 48 hours.
