48 hour Film Project Miami
(released 6/13/2005)

The 48 Hour Film Project brings its wild, sleepless weekend of filmmaking to Miami, July 29th - July 31st. The 48 Hour Film Project asks filmmaking teams to make a movie from scratch - teams write, shoot, edit and score original music - all in just 48 hours! On Friday night, teams draw their genre from a hat, and receive a character, prop and line of dialogue that must appear in the film. On Sunday night they race to the drop off location with a finished film.

The project is open to pros and amateurs alike. All films will be screened at Sunrise Cinemas, Intercoastal Mall, North Miami Beach on Tuesday, August 2nd. The winning Miami film will compete against other films at the 48 Film Project's national screening (2004 films screened at Cinequest film festival), and will compete for valuable prizes. Entry instructions can be found at

The 48 Hour Film Project is held in 30 cities in the US and around the world, including New York, Los Angeles, London, and Melbourne. 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. The tight deadline of 48 hours puts the focus squarely on the filmmakers--emphasizing creativity and teamwork. While the time limit places an unusual restriction on the filmmakers, it is also liberating by putting an emphasis on "doing" instead of "talking."
