What is the 48 Hour Film Project?

The 48 Hour Film Project comes to Las Vegas on the weekend of April 12 – 14, 2013. Filmmakers from all over the Las Vegas area will compete to see who can make the best short film in only 48 hours. The winning film will go up against films from around the world. There are currently 32 teams competing in this year’s Las vegas competition.
On Friday night (April 12th) each team will receive a character, prop, line of dialogue, and a movie genre. You then have only 48 hours to write a script, shoot your movie, edit and have it completed by 7pm on Sunday evening!  A few days later all the movies from each team are then shown in a local movie theatre and judges will pick a winner!


Weekend Schedule

Due to the dynamic nature of the competition the schedule throughout the weekend will be constantly changing but we’ve tried to show an example of how we hope the weekend will go …


Friday Night

  • Receive Assignment (6-7 p.m.) – Two team representatives will attend the official kickoff to receive our assigned genre, prop, character, and dialogue!
  • KICKOFF AT 7:00 PM!Entire team will gather for a kickoff event at 7pm! During this time we will start assigning each team member to their cast & crew assignments.
