The 48HFP Meets World Cup!

We're doing a mashup of the 48 Hour Film Project and the World Cup!  There will be online voting that determines the best film in each country, then we'll begin the Group Stages where country winning films will be randomly assigned to compete against other country winners.  In the final round, international judges will determine the winner.

DC is the birthplace of the 48HFP!

In May of 2001, Mark Ruppert (Creator/ Executive Producer), Liz Langston (Co-Founder/ Executive Producer) and Christina Ruppert (Director of Operations) were all part of the team The Big Ouch. It was one of 10 teams in the inaugural 48 Hour Film Project and the required prop was a severed body part.
