48 FILM Project Screening and Awards

The 48 FILM Project gives contestants just 48 hours to write, shoot, and edit a four- to seven-minute short. It’s a tough order, but every year, filmmakers around the world step up to the challenge. In February, the top 15 choices of 2014 get the spotlight in an awards show gala and screening. The event wraps up with a top-10 rundown of the film’s all-time favorite submissions, and there’s one more prize in store: judges will put together a “dream team” of winners and hand them $48,000 to make a feature film.

The 2014 Winning Films

  • The Deal: This grand-prize-winning comedy takes a look at the otherworldly bureaucracy that ensnares an old man who tries to make pact with a devil.
  • Unkillable: A hitman encounters supernaturally bad luck in this runner-up.
  • Kidnapping: The French second runner-up follows three unbelievably incompetent kidnappers trying to make off with an American poet.
  • Hiccups: The universe colludes to keep a frustrated entertainer from the birthday clown gig he needs to keep his apartment.
  • The Malignant 8: A young girl dies suddenly after her mother purchases a Super 8 camera that seems to have a malignant mind of its own.

48FILM Project

Most films take years to create. The films made with the 48FILM Project take just two days. True to the organization's name, the project challenges its participants to write, film, and edit a complete short in 48 hours. The competition comes with some ingenious parameters. Once filmmakers sign up and choose a genre, they'll receive three elements to incorporate: a line of dialogue, a character, and a prop.

By purchasing this deal you'll unlock points which can be spent on discounts and rewards. Every 5,000 points can be redeemed for $5 Off your next purchase.
