The 48HFP Meets World Cup!

You're a creative filmmaker.  You can't wait for the lockdown to be finished.  You want to show the world what you can do...

The 48 Hour Global Film Challenge gives you that chance!

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.  Local judges determine who the city winners are, but the online audience takes control from there.

A portion of proceeds will go to benefit Doctors Without Borders and their efforts against the coronavirus.

Films from Previous Years


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.
