Detroit 48 Hour Film Horror Project


November 8, 2013 - November 10, 2013
Ferndale/Downtown Detroit,
Cost: $175 enrollment fee + $10 screening charge

The Detroit 48 Hour Film Project will hold a competition in Detroit on Friday, November 8 through Sunday, November 10. The contest will challenge local filmmakers to create the best horror film in only 48 hours.

In case you’re unfamiliar with how the 48 Hour Film Project works, participants are given a genre (in this case, a horror sub-genre), character, prop, and line of dialogue, then have 48 hours to write, shoot, and edit a short film.

Registration costs $175 and there is no limit to the number of participants allowed on a team. The event kicks off at Ferndale’s M-1 Studios at 6 p.m. on Friday, and finished films must be turned in no later than 7:30 p.m. at Dino’s Lounge (also in Ferndale) on Sunday.

Films will be screened at Cinema Detroit on Wednesday, November 13 and Thursday, November 14, when awards will be distributed. Admission to the screenings costs $10.
