Date & Time: 
Wednesday, May 23, 2018 - 7:00pm to 8:30pm
Location(s): 
Central Library
201 W Mifflin St
Madison, WI

Filmmakers from all over the Madison area will compete to see who can make the best short film in only 48 hours. The winning film will go up against films from around the world at Filmapalooza 2019 for a chance at the grand prize and an opportunity to screen at the Cannes Film Festival 2019 Short Film Corner. 

The 48-hour film festival begins Friday, July 13 and ends on Sunday, July 15. Interested in competing?  Michael Keeney of Key Media will teach you ways to make not only your 48 film, but every future film better! Keeney is a veteran filmmaker, successfully working on studio and independent productions as well as winning awards in both the Madison and Chicago 48s before becoming a Madison Co-Producer. His experiences on Hollywood blockbusters such as "Batman Begins," "The Dark Knight," "Jupiter Ascending," and "Public Enemies;" independents like "No God, No Master," and "Falsely Accused;" and micro-budget award-winning films including "Bad Ambulance," as well as countless commercials can be — and have been — applied to the 48-Hour competition.

• Find out what you can't do before Friday the 13th of July at 7p.m — AND WHAT YOU CAN.
• LEARN how to make the most of your resources, and what resources you didn't realize you had.
• Discover TIPS AND TACTICS to use the 48's rules to your film-making advantage.
• And more! For FREE!

The 48-Hour Film Project is a grassroots/international film competition/festival where filmmaking teams create complete short films over the course of a single weekend. Their work will be screened at Madison Dine-in 6 (formerly Sundance 608) and will compete for a chance to be shown at the prestigious Cannes Film Festival.
