New Orleans, Louisiana October 23 - 25, 2020

Get Ready for An Amazing Challenge!

The challenge? To make a film in only 48 hours!

SPECIAL THIS YEAR: We are going virtual!  Filmmakers from all over the New Orleans, LA 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 2021 for a chance at the grand prize and an opportunity to screen at the Cannes Film Festival 2021 Short Film Corner.

And in response to current times, the New Orleans 48HFP will present all events virtually this year -- Two Networking/Mixers, the Kickoff, the Dropoff, & the Premiere Screenings!  Plus, we will have our special Virtual Audience Awards Grand Championship Screening.  And everything will culminate with the Virtual “Best of Screening” and Announcement of Awards winners (All Categories)!

We love films and the people who make them, and our hope is to keep everyone safe and happy and making awesome 48-hour films throughout the year!  We hope you will join us!
