Since its start in 2001, the 48 Hour Film Project has offered filmmakers an opportunity to share their vision while putting their technical skills to the test. It has become part of film culture and is a milestone for many participants. The competition has seen the creation of almost 70,000 short films by over one million participants worldwide. Filmmakers are tasked with crafting a seven-minute film within a mere two days. The best films are showcased at local screenings and featured at Filmapalooza, 48HFP's international festival, where they are honored at an annual awards ceremony.
