48FILM Project Logo

The winners of the 2016 48FILM Project International short film competition are from around the world, with UK’s CHOKE capturing three of the top awards including Best Film, Best Director, and Best Cinematography. 

 

The 48FILM Project (www.48filmproject.com), a leading online short film competition, has created one of the largest Grand Prizes in the genre’s history – a $100,000 production budget to film a feature film. The festival producers will be awarding the collective of 2016 winners (Best in each category) with a production budget of $100,000 to make a feature film that will commence shooting this summer in Greece. 

 

"We have seen a new level of excellence this year that is a testament to the unsung skilled artists around the world. Our winners are a diverse cultural community and we are looking forward to seeing how their talent translates into feature filmmaking," said Executive Producer, Chris Siametis. "The 48FILM Project was created to provide a unique and powerful platform for creatives to showcase their work - while the Grand Prize was initiated to take that skill set to a new, commercially viable level.”

ABOUT THE 48FILM FESTIVAL

The 48FILM Festival is open to everyone: beginner to professional, from all nations. The competition opens in January and closes late November. Once registered, a competing team selects a genre and when to start the clock. 48FILM Project provides three elements that are required to be included: a character, a line, and a prop. Filmmakers then have 48 hours to create a short film in English or with English subtitles that is four to seven minutes in length and upload it to www.48filmproject.com/competition/2017/register

Hogan (Producer for "Half Past Dead", "The Three Little Stooges", was also granted additional thanks for his contribution to "Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice"), Michael Hothorn (award-winning casting director and producer known for "Mr & Mrs Smith", "Minority Report", and "Planet of The Apes"), Joey Paul Jensen (casting director of "The Three Little Stooges" and "Beautifully Broken", Francesco Vitali (director of "Gates of Hades", as well as Co-Founder of the 48FILM Festival.
