At 5pm on Friday, July 20, a package was given to fifteen teams of filmmakers. Inside was a set of rules that the teams had to follow as they made their films: 2 props, 2 lines of dialogue, 1 location, 1 editing effect and 1 genre.
They wrote, shot and edited their 5-minute movies over the next 48 hours, and handed in a finished project at 5pm on Sunday, July 22. On August 10, the works screen at Metro Cinema, and awards will be presented. For more information, contact firstname.lastname@example.org, or visit www.myspace.com/48hourfilmfest.
