48 Hour Film Festival Returns

The 48 Hour Film Project is back, inviting everyone to flex their creative muscles and shoot a film within two days for a chance to score the internationally acclaimed festival's top spot.

Staff Writer

This Thursday the much-lauded 48 Hour Film Project returns to Cairo for the third year in a row. A frantic weekend will see thousands of participants from all over the world frantically run, skip and jump around their respective cities attempting to script and shoot a short movie within 48 hours. Whether you're a film aficionado with a masters in filmography and a Mark 2 camera, or you're just sitting around bored with your camera phone, wondering what to do this weekend, you can still enter. Once you register your team on the 48 Hour Film Project website here, head to Darb 1917 tomorrow, Thursday September 11 at 18:00, where you'll be assigned at random a character, a prop, a line of dialogue and a genre, and two days later all entries must be handed in.


The films will then be screened for all participants on September 18. The winner will receive a trophy and his/her movie will be screened at Filmapalooza, the official 48HFP Awards Weekend for all the best films internationally. The grand prize winner will also receive $5,000, and 10 of the best films will be screened at the Cannes Film Festival's Short Film Corner 2015.
