The 48 Hour Film Project competition returns to Atlanta for another run
Get your filmmaking team together and compete in the short film competition hosted by the 48 Hour Film Project (48HFP). The winner will earn the opportunity to have their film screened at the Cannes Film Festival next year, and to go up against global filmmakers at Filmapalooza 2019. The contest will take place June 29-July 1, so make sure to clear your schedule if you want to join in the fun. Following the 48 hours of competition, teams will have their work screened in front of an audience of film-industry members and film lovers alike, beginning July 10 at the Landmark Theater.
Early-bird registration is $148 if you enter by June 1st, but if you're looking for a chance to enter your team for free, Indie Film Loop and Get Connected will be giving away a free registration spot for one lucky team. Make sure to attend their network BBQ May 31 for your chance to win.
