State 48 Hour Film Project. Crew up for the ultimate filmmaking sprint and come make a movie in a weekend! That’s right…only 48 Hours! Challenge your creativity, collaborate with friends on a film project, and screen your film at a film festival—all in one weekend!

State 48 Hour Film Projects are a worldwide filmmaking competition where teams embark on the entire filmmaking journey—scripting, filming, and editing a short film all in a 48-hour timeframe. Beginning Friday, April 19th at 3:00 PM is the Kickoff Event. At 3:30 PM Teams will choose an envelope to draw a Genre, Character, Line of Dialogue, and Prop to include. Then it’s lights, camera, action—writing, filming, and editing, before submitting the film by Sunday 3:30 PM. The Film Festival begins on Sunday at 3:30 PM. Films must be between 3 to 5 minutes, excluding credits.
