48 hour Film Project
The oldest and largest timed film festival, the 48 hour Film Project comes to Barcelona for the first time.
Started in 2001, and now taking place in over 100 cities across the world, this timed festival has attracted nearly 130,000 film makers. Competitors are asked to write, cast, shoot and edit their piece in a mere 48 hours. They are provided with a genre, a character, a prop, and a line of dialogue that they must work into their piece but they will be responsible for getting their crew, cast and equipment together. Films entered just one minute late will be disqualified.
All films will be shown in the Cinemes Girona on June 16th where the audience will vote for their favourite. The winning Barcelona films will then compete in the annual competition Filmapalooza alongside the year's other locations and compete to be among the work shown at Canne's Short Film Corner.
To take part registration is now open at www.48hourfilm.com/barcelona
