48FILM Festival Competition Year 2017

Our original international short film competition opens on January 11, 2017, and runs through November 30, 2017. So last moment to shoot your film is November 30. Filmmakers can submit as many entries as they want during the competition year. We don't limit contestants to one participation.*

How to Enter

Filmmakers should register their teams with 48filmproject.com. Team leaders have time to prepare before pressing the "start my competition" button.

  • Organise the team

To start your Competition Clock

Log in to your profile page.

Click the button "Start my Competition".

Choose your genre.

The system assigns 3 elements: a character, a dialogue line and a prop, which must be included in the film.

The 48-hour countdown has started and this begins the team's competition slot.

About the 3 Elements

Our system generates three elements at random when the team starts their competition. These are a character, a line of dialogue and a prop.

No two entries receive the same combination of elements. The assignment of elements is unique to each film submitted to the 48FILM Festival shorts competition.

To complete a 48FILM Festival Competition Entry

At the end of the 48-hour production slot, contestants should upload their completed film, with titles, in one of the specified file formats. The organizers allow two additional hours for uploading an entry.

These instructions and prompts are given on the team's profile page to guide contestants through the entry process.
