Visiting Program | SIFF Cinema Uptown
The 48 Hour Film Project is a wild and sleepless weekend where teams write, shoot, and edit a film in just 48 hours. On Friday night, teams draw a genre from a hat. They also get a character, prop and line to include in their films. On Sunday night, in a wild dash to the drop off event, the film is turned in - and teams celebrate. This is their premiere 2016 screening!
