I’m pleased to announce that all films will screen at the beautiful and historic Hollywood Theatre again this year, and the big Portland winner will go head to head with other city winners in a no-holds barred, cage match to determine the best 48 Hour Film of 2011.
Screenings will be August 10 and August 11 and tickets will be available on-line before the screenings.

What are you waiting for?
Every second counts when you only have 48 hours to make a film…
In 2010, nearly 40,000 filmmakers made 3,000 films in in 80 cities on five continents. This year, we’re even bigger, with filmmakers around the world taking the challenge to make a film in just 48 hours.

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 skills. While the time limit places an unusual restriction on the filmmakers, it is also liberating by putting an emphasis on “doing” instead of “talking.”
