As London is going film mad for the London Film Festival, there is another exciting film event taking place – The London 48 Hour Film Project.
Last weekend 28 teams battled it out to make a short film in just 48 hours and tonight and tomorrow night you have a chance to see them for the very first time.
The 48 Hour Film Project is the first and biggest timed-film competition in the world. The concept is crazy: in just one weekend the teams have to write, shoot and edit a film. This is not for the faint hearted.
These events take place all over the world across the year and the winning film from each country will be shown at 48 Hour Film Project’s Filmapalooza, taking place in March next year at the Miami International Film Festival.
Only 23 teams completed the challenge this year and handed in a film by the 7.30pm deadline last Sunday.They will be judged by Writer/Director Paul Andrew Williams, Critic and Broadcaster James King and Critic and Journalist Larushka Ivan-Zadeh.
If you want to see some unique filmaking, showcasing some excellent UK talent come along to the screenings at the Prince Charles Cinema, off Leicester Square tonight and tomorrow night. Tickets are £6.50 and can be ordered from here.
