VIDEO: 48-Hour Film Festival to showcase winners this weekend
The 48 Hour Film Project, the world’s largest timed filmmaking competition, stopped in New York City last weekend.
The 48 Hour Film Project stops in hundreds of cities across the world, bringing aspiring filmmakers out to create short films for a $5000 prize. The winning team also lands the chance to have their film viewed at the 2014 Cannes International Film Festival.
Described as a mix of “The Amazing Race,” “American Idol,” and “Tough Mudder,” the NYC stop of the competition brought out 72 teams, out of which 12 teams gained the opportunity to have their hard work shown to an audience.
The 12 teams’ films will be shown at a public screening at the Cantor Film Center on June 14 at 8 p.m. Tickets for the screening are $10, and can be purchased online.
