The weekend? July 31 - August 2, 2020
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!
Here are some of the teams that will be making a short film for New Orleans in only 48 hours.
