3rd Annual 48-Hour Film Challenge 2014

What can YOU do in just 48 hours?

WINTER FILM AWARDS challenges the local NYC community to create a 4-7 minute short film in a specified genre, tagline and prop in just a single gonzo weekend! Thirty teams of the most creative people in the tri-state area have just 48 sleepless hours to decide what they are going to do, write a screenplay, assemble props, costumes and actors, rehearse, shoot, score and edit their film. Students, amateurs, and seasoned industry veterans alike learn the importance of caffeine, team work and time management in successful filmmaking.

For the 2012 Challenge, teams had to contend with a large brightly-colored snowflake sugar cookie and a tagline from Fight Club.   For the 2013 Challenge, we made it even more difficult — Teams had a tagline from Ghostbusters and Gray Line New York provided each team with one-hour private shooting time on a double-decker sightseeing tour bus, complete with Tour Guide and Driver.  What will we come up with this year to make you crazy?

Visit the WFA YouTube playlist to view all of the amazing films from last year.

The 2014 WFA 48-Hour Film Challenge gets under way on Friday November 7 at 8pm. A representative from each team must go to their offices at 419 Lafayette Street, New York NY 10003 at 8pm to sign in to the Challenge. Entries may be shot either via traditional filmmaking equipment or teams can do the whole thing on smartphones. There is no fee to participate in the challenge, but teams must pre-register to ensure a spot.

Completed films are uploaded to YouTube to garner the coveted “Fan Favorite” vote – for the 2013 Challenge, films received 65k views!

On Friday November 21, the best entries will be screened at Blondies (212 W 79th St, New York NY 10024) followed by an Award Ceremony, awesome prizes and networking party. Over $7k in prizes will be awarded for BEST PICTURE and FAN FAVORITE. Prizes generously provided by B&H Photo, Ride of FameIndoor Extreme Sports, The Paint Place, Chelsea Piers, Sleep No More / The McKittrick Hotel, Pole Position Raceway, NY SKYRIDE, City Wine Tours and others!
