48 Hour Film Project Teams Forming Now
Early Bird Discount Registration Ends Monday

LITTLE ROCK (July 21 2010) — Teams are now forming for the 2010 48 Hour Film Project scheduled for August 20-22. Teams registering to compete in the 48 Film Project by next Monday, July 26, will receive a discounted rate of only $135 versus the regular rate of $155.

The Little Rock Film Festival (LRFF) will produce this year’s 48 Hour Film Project competition where film teams from across the state write, film, edit, and package a short film in only 48 hours.

Teams are given a required character, prop, line of dialog and film genre the Friday night of the
competition and must turn in a complete short film 48 hours later.

Last year’s 48 Hour Film Project competition required teams to include a suitecase [sic] as a prop, a locksmith named Victor or Victoria Shay, and the line of dialog “this is for you.” Teams drew from a wide variety of film genres including comedy, musical, family, buddy film, horror, and science fiction.

Screenings of the 48 Hour Film Project will take place August 25-27 at the Riverdale 10 Cinema.

Audience members can vote on their favorite film for the Audience Favorite award.

A panel of judges selected by the LRFF will judge which 48 Hour Film Project film entry receives the honor for “Best Film.” This entry will go on to compete in the international 48 Film Project competition with film entries from 80 cities from around the world.

Teams can find registration informaiton online at

The Little Rock Film Festival (LRFF) was founded in 2006 by Arkansas natives Owen Brainard, documentary film makers Brent and Craig Renaud, and Jamie Moses.
