48 Hour Film Project New Haven to host meet-and-greet, screening at BVFCC Thurs., July 11, 5-7 PM

48 Hour Film Project New Haven is hosting a meet-and-greet at Best Video Film & Cultural Center on Thursday, July 11, from 5-7 PM. As part of the event, organizers will screen the best films from the 2018 48 Hour Film Project.

The 48 Hour Film Project is a wild and sleepless weekend in which you and a team make a movie—write, shoot, edit and score it—in just 48 hours. Filmmakers from all over the New Haven, CT area will compete to see who can make the best short film in only 48 hours. The winning film will go up against films from around the world at Filmapalooza 2019 for a chance at the grand prize and an opportunity to screen at the Cannes Film Festival 2019 Short Film Corner. The 2018 48 Hour Film Project takes place July 26-28. More info can be found on their Web site.

They kick off their filming weekend soon on July 26th, so this might be the last time to gather and secure cast and crew in a stress free, neutral 48 setting. Organizers will be there to discuss 48-ing and films in general.

They will be showing the best films of 2018! If you missed these last year—or want to see the competition (they have a lot of returning teams)—come and check out this screening!
