Welcome to the 4PFP
Are you a director, actor, editor, shooter, or audio ninja just itching to practice your craft? Professionals, pre-professionals or hobbyists - this is what you have been waiting for.
The Four Points Film Project is an opportunity for filmmakers of all levels to practice your craft - to make a film in a weekend and have it screen before an audience at your local theater.
How It Works
It sounds simple: Make a film in 48 hours - 2 days - one weekend. Here’s the catch - you don’t know the genre of your film until right before the clock starts ticking!
First begin putting a team together and register for the 48HFP in your city.
Next after registering, you will receive a series of emails with information and tips for a successful event. During the lead up to the Project, teams recruit their cast and crew, scout locations and pull their gear together - putting everything in place for the filmmaking weekend.
Friday Night Kickoff
The 48 Hour Film Project weekend starts on a Friday night with the Kickoff Event for your city. At the Kickoff:
- Each team receives the genre for its film in a random drawing
- Then the required elements are announced - a character, a prop and a line of dialogue - each of which must appear in all films
Then it is off to the races!! Filmmakers have just 48 hours to write, shoot and edit their film.
Film Weekend: 48 Hours of Non-Stop Action
Most teams schedule their weekend like this:
- Friday Night: Writing the script, gathering costumes and props
- Saturday: Production - this is the shoot
- Sunday: Editing and Dropoff - it’s time to complete your film as the minutes tick down
일요일 Night Dropoff
At the Dropoff Event, teams submit their film along with the required paperwork. But don’t be late! One minute late is too late to be eligible for awards - but all films are screened.
Premiere Screening: Your Film on the Big Screen
The culmination of all your hard work is a screening of your film at a local theater. All submitted films (both late and on-time) will be screened!
Filmmakers experience the thrill of seeing their creative work on the big screen in front of an audience. An opportunity you don't want to miss!심사 및 상 After the 48

SAG-AFTRA(배우 연맹)에 속한 분은 48시간 영화제에 참가할 수 있습니다. 하지만 추가적인 서류작업이 필요하며, 배급에 제약이 있을 수 있습니다.
몇몇 지역 뮤지션 및 밴드, 작곡가들은 당신의 영화에 기꺼이 사용을 허락할 것입니다. 왜나하면 이 것은 그들의 재능을 추가적으로 노출시키기 때문입니다.
