Marcus Point Theater

Join us at the screening for the Madison arm of the international 48Hour Film Project. It is the world's oldest and largest timed filmmaking competition. If you want the real deal, this is it. 

Our filmmakers took on the challenge to write, shoot, edit, and score short films in just 48 hours all while maintaining strict safety precautions to keep their cast and crews safe. We applaud their passion to their craft, and we are honored to share their films. 


To best protect our staff, participants, families, and friends we are requiring proof of vaccination or a negative test within the past three days to attend our events. Mask use is encouraged but not required. Our policies will be reviewed as situations evolve.

See you there!
