The weekend? October 9 - 11, 2020
The challenge? To make a film in only 48 hours!
Filmmakers from all over the Los Angeles, CA 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.
In response to the coronavirus we've reduced our 2020 prices.
Current Team Leaders, filmmakers, and actors, come to our informative workshop with our Festival Judge, Michelle Lewitt. Michelle will provide helpful information for producers looking to cast great talent, and for actors who want to create unforgettable performances in their films Oct. 9-11th. Michelle will also discuss what she looks for in award winning films. You don't want to miss this! Q&A to follow.
