The weekend? August 20 - 22, 2021
The challenge? To make a film in only 48 hours!
Filmmakers from all over the Little Rock, AR 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 2022 for a chance at the grand prize and an opportunity to screen at the Cannes Film Festival 2022 Short Film Corner.
Due to the current rise in COIVD-19 cases, all in person events have been moved online. This includes Kickoff/Drop off and all Screenings.
We will reveal all of the filmmaking elements live via Zoom and will draw each teams assigned genres out of a hat. Shortly after the drawing we will email teams the assigned genres and the required filmmaking elements.
Kickoff officially starts at 6:00 PM, but we will be available on Zoom at 5:30 PM to answer any questions.
Time: Aug 20, 2021 05:30 PM Central Time (US and Canada)

If COVID-19 case continue to rise we may have to limit drop off to Cinema48.com
