A few weeks back, between October 17th and October 19th, filmmakers from all over Toronto gathered to undertake the phenomenal task of writing, shooting and delivering a 4-7 minute film in just 48 Hours. Seventy-one teams signed up to take part, ranging from beginner film graduates to established industry professionals.
On November 2nd through November 5th, each of these wonderful short films will be premiered at the iconic Revue Cinema. The top 16 films will get a second screening November 15th at the Bloor Hot Docs Theatre, where over $12,000 in prizes will be handed out at an awards ceremony, following the screenings.
Now in its 7th year, the Toronto arm of the international project is ranked as the biggest time-based short film competition in Canada. The winner of this year’s Toronto 48 Hour Film Project will compete at Filmapalooza in Hollywood. The top ten films from Filmapalooza are then invited to the short film corner at Cannes.
For the participants and particularly the winners, the 48 Hour Film Project is an incredible opportunity to show the world what they can do. It’s also testament to what a creative and competitive group of people can accomplish when they’re under the gun and fuelled by a collective passion for filmmaking.
Vistek, as a proud sponsor of the Project, wishes all the candidates the best of luck.
