About the 48 Hour Film Project
The 48 Hour Film Project is the oldest and largest timed film competition in the world. The 48 Hour Film Project’s mission is to advance filmmaking and promote filmmakers. The tight 48-hour deadline puts the focus squarely on the filmmaking, emphasizing creativity and teamwork and “doing” instead of “talking.” The emphasis is also on building communities of local creative people, facilitating making new connections, showcasing skills, and celebrating what creativity and teamwork can accomplish in just one weekend. In 2012, nearly 40,000 filmmakers will participate in almost 120 cities around the world. For questions about registration and event logistics email gary(at)exactcomm(dot)com.
