The time has come once again to participate in the annual Buffalo 48 Hour Film Project. No, we’re not asking you to film a movie, we’re asking you to screen some films! The Buffalo 48 Hour Film Project Filmmaking Weekend is August 9-11, 2019. These films were shot over the course of 48 hours, by both novice and experienced filmmakers.
The 2017 Buffalo winning team, Partially Submerged Elephants, went on to win at Filmapalooza and had their film, Ride of Your Life , screened at Cannes in front of an international audience.
The winner of the Buffalo 48HFP has a chance to make it all the way to Cannes. But before that happens, moviegoers can support the filmmakers at the world premiere screenings on August 17 & 18, 11:30am at North Park Theatre. Tickets are $10.50 and will be available on North Park Theatre’s website www.northparktheatre.org.
Altogether, 30 filmmaking teams participate in the event. The end project vary greatly, but they all have a few things in common. These are all 4-7 minute long short films.
This is not just an event, it’s a filmmaking PROGRAM. There are screenings, awards shows, a video series, and tons of fun.
Buffalo joins 130+ cities around the world in this esteemed film event. The winners of the initial round go on to screen at the Filmapalooza Film Festival in Orlando, Florida. From there, it’s the big time, with an opportunity to screen at Cannes.
The 48 Hour Film Project’s Filmmaking Kickoff is TONIGHT Aug. 9th at 6:00pm at the Parkside Lodge in Delaware Park. The films will screen at the Premiere screening event at the North Park Theatre August 17th and 18th with activities starting at 11:00am. More info at lemurstudios.com/48hfp. Also on Facebook.
