Genre Requirement 48 Hour Film CineKid Project

At the kickoff event each team draws a genre from a hat.

The catch? They're all kid-friendly film genres. Your film must be true to the genre you have selected—and no trading with other teams!

Got it all? Well, be warned... We switch up the options each year - just to keep you on your toes!!

Combining Genres

You may combine genres (e.g., a silent comedic buddy film) - however, your official assigned genre must be clearly represented in the mix.

Adherence to Assignment
