48HFP Filmmakers Head To CannesThursday, April 28, 2016

This May, more than 50 48HFP filmmakers will head to France to attend this year's Cannes Film Festival to see the screening of their winning 2015 48HFP film. This year's festival runs May 11th - 22nd. Our top 48HFP films will be screening as part of the Short Film Corner on May 18th. Get all of the details about this year's festival at

Attending Cannes Film Festival to see your own film screen there is perhaps one of the most prestigious honors one can experience as a filmmaker. For 48HFP filmmakers that have attended in the past, it has proved to be not only exhilarating and inspirational, but also a great way to find a connection with the global filmmaking community on an even higher level. One previous attendee said that Going to Cannes was like the best dream I did not even know I ever had. Cannes has also been a great way for 48HFP filmmakers to connect amid the hustle and bustle of red carpets, screenings, and parties happening all around. It's great that you already have something in common. A common ground to start from. An experience to talk about. Plus, a lot of us already knew each other. It's a safe group of amazing people to hang out with!

Whether you're there watching your film up on the big screen or you're there to see the hundreds of other great films, we hope all of our 48HFP filmmakers have an awesome time and make the most of their Cannes experience. We are proud to have you represent the 48 Hour Film Project at this amazing global filmmaking event!
