The weekend? May 15 - 17, 2020
The challenge? To make a film in only 48 hours!
Filmmakers from all over the Washington, DC area will compete to see who can make the best short film in only 48 hours. The winning film will go up against films from around the world at Filmapalooza 2021 for a chance at the grand prize and an opportunity to screen at the Cannes Film Festival 2021 Short Film Corner.
Come out and celebrate filmmaking in DC on Saturday June 27! These 48 Hour Films were produced on the weekend of May 15th-May 17th. Come out and support your local filmmakers and watch their amazing short films at the Best Of Screening where winners will be announced in over 30 categories, including Best Film, Best Director, Best Writing, Acting Awards and more.
Here are some of the teams that will be making a short film for Washington in only 48 hours.
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.
