The Philadelphia Project Now Part
of the Philadelphia Film Festival
April 8-10, 2005

Philadelphia Films and Awards!

The Philadelphia 48 Hour Film Project was a rousing success! Just two days after a beautiful spring weekend of filmmaking, filmmakers packed the International House theater for the screening of their films. The range and creativity was amazing. There was a surreal/dada influence in some films with amazing scenery and costumes. We saw some strong horror films, a very unfortunate donut incident, a fight between ketchup and bar-b-que sauce, an omnivorous vacuum cleaner, and a hilarious take on a Dungeons and Dragons game. Two unfortunate teams drew the new wildcard genre * our hardest one ever * historical fiction! They came through with a film set in Nazi Germany, and another set in the break-dance-happy 80's.

After the screenings, filmmakers attended a wrap party at the Cabaret bar where they exchanged stories of their filming weekend. The judges deliberated on the spot, and at 2 in the morning, made their decisions. Scott Johnston and Liz Langston announced the winners on the spot to a surprisingly big crowd of partying film teams. Congratulations, Philadelphia!
