48 Hour Film Project Returns in June

May 2nd, 2012 | By | Category: Entertainment

48 Hour Film Festival
Calling all filmmakers, actors, sound techs, crew members!

The 48 Hour Film Project comes to Greensboro on the weekend of June 22 – 24, 2012. Filmmakers from all over the Greensboro area (and beyond) 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, and the ultimate winner will be screened at the 2013 Cannes Film Festival.  Teams are given 48 hours to make a film from start to finish.  At the beginning of the event, teams draw a genre, such as comedy, horror, western, romance.  Then they are given a prop, a character and a line that must be used in the film.  Once teams have their information, they are off and running and must have their completed film turned in by the deadline 48 hours later.  Films are between 4-7 minutes long.  Last year, 43 teams in Greensboro participated in the Greensboro 48 Hour Film Project.

Events are starting up in preparation for the Greensboro 48 Hour Film Project.  On Thursday, May 10, 2012, Greensboro Producer Iris Carter will host a Meet and Greet at Cafe Pasta, 305 State Street, Greensboro from 5:30-8:00 pm.  This is your chance to find team members, ask questions and get lots of information that you’ll need to compete.

As always, teams will be accepted on a first come, first served basis. A limited number of slots are available for interested teams. Early registration is encouraged to guarantee a spot! The winners will be screened this year at the Carolina Theatre on June 26th-27th.

Early Bird Registration is open now, and the cost is $140. Teams must register on or before Monday, May 28, 2012 to get this special rate. Regular registration is $160. If teams register after Tuesday, June 12, 2012, the registration fee is $175.
