Bringing art to people and people to art


Make a film in 48 Hours!  Registration Opening Soon

The Indianapolis 48 Hour Film Project is produced by Big Car. It is open to professional, amateur and first-time filmmakers in Indianapolis. It is awesome. You should do it.

On Friday night, July 31, all registered teams meet to get a character, a prop, a line of dialogue and a randomly-chosen genre, all to include in your movie. [Animators and puppeteers welcome!] Then you have exactly 48 hours to make it all happen—from story to soundtrack to editing. Turn it in. High-fives. Take a long nap.

All on-time films screen to cheering audiences at the Tobias Theater at IMA the evening of Saturday, August 8. One winning team from Indianapolis will screen their film at the international Filmapalooza in Hollywood.

The sooner you sign up, the cheaper it is, and you can get started recruiting cast and crew. Prices are per team, not per person. Registration opens May 27, 2015 at Register before July 6 and pay just $140. Between July 7–July 21? $160. July 22–July 31 = $175

Join the 48 Hour Film Facebook group to keep up to date, network and share your experiences along the way!  Questions? E-mail email hidden; JavaScript is required.
