48 Hour Film Project
The 48 Hour Film Project challenges film teams to create a movie in only two days, stretching their creative muscles to the limit with run and gun filmmaking. The seventh annual 48 Hour Film Project is the largest film competition in Seattle with over 700 people competing in dozens of teams every year. Teams are given a character, line of dialogue, props, a genre and 48 hours to write, shoot, edit and score an original 4-7 minute film. Films that beat the clock and get their submissions in on time are eligible for official judging and prizes from local vendors. In the past, Modern Digital, The Seattle Film Institute, Bad Animals and Adobe have contributed prizes to the competition. The Best in City winner goes on to compete for Best 48 Hour Film of 2011 at Filmapalooza in Miami in the early spring of 2012. Twelve of the best films of the year go on to screen at the 2012 Cannes Film Festival. Seattle submissions will be screened at the Harvard Exit Theater on June 28th and 30th, 2011. Early bird registration begins Tuesday, April 19th (use the link above); please email firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
