Making its Sacramento debut in 2007, the 48 Hour Film Festival offers the opportunity for budding filmmakers and professionals alike to get down to the nitty gritty in a two-day challenge that tests both skill and will.
Competitors are tasked with making a film from start to finish in 48 hours, which includes writing the script, shooting the footage, and editing the film to its final cut. Although casting and location scouting is allowed ahead of time, 4 required elements ensure the filmmaking can’t truly begin until the first day of competition.
