Filmmakers from all over the Nairobi, KE 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 competition is held worldwide to come up with most creative film within 48 hour,do you think you have capacity to come up with a film plot and produce,direct and shoot movie in 2 days then join the challenge.

The 48 Hour Film Project is a contest in which teams of filmmakers are assigned a genre, a character, a prop, and a line of dialogue, and have 48 hours to create a short film containing those elements. Shortly after the 48 hours of filmmaking, the films from each city are then screened at a theater in that city.The Project was inspired by The 24 Hour Plays.

It has existed since 2001.It was created by Mark Ruppert and is produced by Ruppert and Liz Langston. In 2009, nearly 40,000 filmmakers made around 3000 films in 76 cities worldwide.


Related Competitions In 2003, the creators of the 48 Hour Film Project created the National Film Challenge, which is an annual three-day film competition with roughly the same structure as the 48 Hour Film Project, except that the films are mailed in when completed and then screened on-line, rather than being shown in movie theater in the local city.

In 2008, this competition was opened to filmmakers from around the world and although the name was not officially changed, the runner-up hailed from Utrecht, Netherlands.The founders and organizers say that the NFC offers a time-based film-making competition to participants around the world, including those who are not close to a 48 Hour Film Project participating city.

The organizers of the Auckland competition split off from the 48 Hour Film Project after the 2003 competition and formed 48HOURS, which is now a wholly separate organization that runs a similar competition in New Zealand. In Finland 48 Hour Film Project was arranged once in 2008, but new competition started at 2010 with name Uneton48 (Sleepless48).

In 2006, the producers of the National Film Challenge began the International Documentary Challenge (also known as the Doc Challenge) in which participating filmmakers produce a documentary in five days. In 2011, 48 Go Green split off from 48 Hour Film Project to become a separate, independent organization. 48 Go Green had a similar style of competition.

The primary differences were an ecological theme, and an entirely online competition to allow worldwide participation. 48 Go Green and 48 Hour Film Project parted ways foll
