This may be overkill, but here's EVEN MORE info about the 48HFP. 



The 48 Hour Film Project is coming to NEW MEXICO!  In a wild, sleepless weekend, you and a team will make a movie--write, shoot, edit and score it.  From scratch.  In 48 hours.  On Friday, July 11, you'll get a character, a prop, a line of dialogue and a genre, all to include in your movie.  By Sunday, July 13, the movie must be complete.  It will show at KiMo Theater in Albuquerque on July 16.


In association with the Duke City Shootout, and with support from the City of Albuquerque, the 48 Hour Film Project is starting its 3rd year in New Mexico.  Teams from across the state are invited to participate.


Last year's winning film by Trifecta Plus screened at the Cannes Film Festival, with many of the team members in attendance.



There are two ways to be involved:


1. FORM A TEAM.  If you can rustle up enough folks to make a movie, great!  The project is open to pros and amateurs alike.  Just put together a team and register on-line at and then meet us on Friday, July 11, ready to go.  There are only a limited number of slots, and once we reach our limit teams will be put on a waiting list, so apply soon...


2. JOIN A TEAM.  If you're interested in participating, but can't form a team, you can still definitely be involved!  There will be happy hours where folks can meet team leaders and join their teams.  Get your information to team leaders at:  Stay tuned for announcements about  "Meet and Greet" opportunities in Albuquerque and Santa Fe.


Here's your chance to get off the couch and start filming.  Meet other filmmakers, spend 48 hours in intense movie making, see your film screened at the world class KiMo Theater, and compete for International fame!  


The winning NEW MEXICO team will compete in second round competitions for a Panasonic Camera, and $5000 in cash, as well as national distribution and film festival screenings.  Entry instructions can be found at


Come on out and make a movie!
