The weekend? July 10 - 12, 2020
The challenge? To make a film in only 48 hours!
Filmmakers from all over the Richmond, VA 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.
Registered filmmakers... this is where you come to get your marching orders--the required character, prop, line of dialogue and genre--for filmmaking weekend! It's more fun when the entire team attends, but only one is required to check in, submit the Team Leader Agreement, draw the team's genre and pick up paperwork.
You made a movie in 48 hours! Drop off your film between 6-7:30 p.m. to be on time and qualify for all awards. If you're late, we'll still take your film and screen it, but it will only qualify for Audience Choice.
