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.
There is no better thing you can do than take part in a 48hr challenge, ‘cos the worst than can happen is you’ll have made a film by Monday!
At 11am (UK time) on that day, we will send you the TITLE of the film you will make, a PROP list, a line of DIALOGUE and an optional IDEA/THEME. You then have until Monday to WRITE, SHOOT and DELIVER your complete 5-minute film.
