About the 48 Hour Film Project
The 48 Hour Film Project’s mission is to advance filmmaking and promote filmmakers. Through its festival/ competition, the Project encourages filmmakers and would-be filmmakers to get out there and make movies using local community resources. The tight deadline of 48 hours puts the focus squarely on the filmmakers—emphasizing creativity and teamwork skills. In 2012, over 50,000 filmmakers will make almost 4,000 films in 120 cities on 6 continents around the world. Over the 11 years of 48 Hour Film Project 278,000 people have made over 19,000 films. In 2011 Austin had 36 teams that consisted over 400 participants.
2012 Cities include Amsterdam, Austin, Barcelona, Beijing, Berlin, Boston, Cairo, Chicago, Delhi, Denver, Detroit, Dubai, Geneva, Istanbul, Johannesburg, Las Vegas, London, Los Angeles, Melbourne, Mexico, Miami, Milwaukee, Montreal, New Orleans, New York, Paris, Philadelphia, Portland, Prague, Rome, San Francisco, São Paulo, Seoul, Tel Aviv, Warsaw, and Washington, DC.
