The 48-hour competition will kick off on October 17 at AM Studio in Al Quoz with all films to be submitted within 48 hours on October 19, 2019.
The annual 48-hour Film Project is back with UAE-based distributor Advanced Media organising the event alongside sponsors Sony Middle East and Movie Magic Screenwriter and supported by Dubai Film and TV Commission. BroadcastPro ME is a proud media partner of the event. The 48-hour competition will kick off on October 17 at AM Studio in Al Quoz with all films to be submitted within 48 hours on October 19, 2019.
The competition, which spans more than 130 cities worldwide, gives participants a genre, a character, a prop, and a line of to use. In 2001, The 48-Hour Film Project began as a local film challenge among friends. Since then, it has evolved into one of the world’s largest filmmaking competitions.
Commenting on the competition, Serine Gharibian, Dubai Associate Producer and Head of Marketing at Advanced Media said: “I personally am very interested in being part of the organising team in Dubai. I believe it offers a great opportunity for filmmakers to challenge themselves to put together a team, create a scenario based on information they received during the kick-off and make a film in only 48 hours. They learn how to manage their time and resources, which will be a great help for their future career.”
The three winners of the competition will also win Sony Alpha mirrorless digital cameras along with prizes from the other sponsors.
The winning team will be invited to Filmapalooza 2020, the final festival for the 48 Hour Film Project in which the winning films from 150 cities worldwide will compete together.
The 48 Hour Film Project has also partnered with Cannes for the last few years, featuring a small selection of the top 48HFP films from around the world as part of the Short Film Corner.
