The 48 Hour Film Project is a wild and sleepless weekend in which teams of filmmakers and aspiring filmmakers have a blast making a movie. All writing, shooting, editing and scoring must be completed in just 48 hours.
In 2013 the 48HFP will visit more than 120 cities where more than 60,000 people will make short films. The Project has truly spread to the four corners of the globe as filmmakers from Asia, Australia, Europe, the Middle East, Africa and the Americas will compete to see who can make the best short film in a weekend.
On Friday the 29th of November, participating teams will gather at The Michael Joseph Center (HQ2 Waiyaki Way, Westlands) where they will be given a genre, a character, a prop, and a line of dialogue they MUST work into their film. Films submitted even 1-minute late on 1st December 2013 will be disqualified.
All films made during the 48Hour Film Project this month in Nairobi, Kenya will premier on the big screen to the open public at Century Cinemax. Junction.
