Haven’t heard of it? The 48 Hour Film Project brings filmmaking teams
together to make a movie from scratch — teams write, shoot, edit and score
— all in just 48 hours. This year the 48HFP will visit over 70 cities
around the world.
Local filmmakers will compete to see who can make the best short film using
the assigned prop, line and character – and in a genre pulled from a hat.
One winning film will go up against films from around the world, and every
film will be screened in the Columbus Theater in front of a full audience.
