  • The Grand Prize: $100,000 to a “dream team” of winners, who will then create a feature film with their new budget

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.
