Over the weekend of May 19th-21st, the contestants of the annual 48 Hour Film Project are writing and shooting new and original short films in Las Vegas. After the theme and other required elements are announced, the participating teams have a mere 48 hours to complete and submit their work.
The kickoff event took place at Funkyard Theater at ReBAR on Friday May 19th. The premiere screenings are happening at the same location from May 23rd to 25th, and the “Best of Screening” is on Friday June 9th from 9pm, so mark your calendars! Tickets can be purchased for all events for $5 each.
The best short films from previous years can be viewed here. One must admire the outstanding creativity the filmmakers had demonstrated, coming up with such unique ideas and turning them into brilliant pieces of motion picture within such a short time frame! In a few days’ time, this years’ creations are also going to be available to be viewed online.
