Back in 2019, when we could meet and party, the 48hr awards were held at Stratford Picturehouse – check out this video chat with the 2019 winners.
The past couple of years have been rubbish for most everyone and it has been a weird time for filmmakers.
There is no better thing you can do than take part in the 48hr challenge. The next one takes place on Saturday 10th September.
We can’t wait to see the results!
It will then take us a few weeks to shortlist the films and send them to our main jury. We are planning to screen ALL the films made this year and hold a big party for the winners and shortlisted films… dates to be announced.
