Wild Card Group 5 - 7 June 2020

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.


The GFC Wild Card Group

The Wild Card Group is a way for filmmakers from cities/countries who are not part of the Global Film Challenge to participate. It is also open to filmmakers who missed out in their local city.

Just like the regular city groups, the Wild Card Group will be judged by industry professionals and a single winner will be selected to go on to the Online Voting phase.  The Wild Card Group is limited to a maximum of 48 teams.
