Members of 48 Hour Film Project New Haven (and anyone interested in NHV48HFP and what it’s about) are getting together out on the Best Video patio to talk about movies—especially the New Haven 48 Hour Film Project! The socializing event takes place Tues., July 6, from 5-7 PM.
What is the 48 Hour Film Project? It’s your chance to stop talking and start filming! The premise? Filmmaking teams have just one weekend to make a short film. All creativity—writing, shooting, editing and adding a musical soundtrack—must occur in a 48 hour window beginning Friday evening at 7 PM and ending Sunday at 7 PM. The following week, the completed films are screened to an eager audience.
Coffee, beer or wine will be available for purchase inside, but no screening this year.
Join for a chat and maybe find your #NHV48HFP team!
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!
