26 teams will have 48 hours to make a film and advance to screen at Filmapalooza

...and the Cannes Film Festival!

The Buffalo 48 Hour Film Project Filmmaking Weekend is August 9-11, 2019. 26 teams of local filmmakers will have just 48 hours to write, shoot, and edit a 4-7 minute long short film!

The 48 Hour Film Project is a global filmmaking event held in 130+ cities around the world. The winning films from each city will move on to have their films shown at the Filmapalooza Film Festival in Orlando, Florida where they will compete against each other for more awards and the opportunity to screen at the prestigious Festival de Cannes in France.

Teams will receive their genre as well as a required line, prop, and character they must include in their films at the kickoff event at Parkside Lodge at 6pm on Friday and will have until 7:30pm on Sunday to drop off their completed films. Novice and experienced filmmakers are put on a level playing field by only having 48 hours to make a film.

Moviegoers can support the filmmakers at the world premiere screenings on August 17 & 18, 11:30am at North Park Theatre. Tickets are $10.50 and will be available on North Park Theatre’s website

Interested filmmakers can still register at until the start of the event on Friday August 9.
