48 Hour Film Project


The time has finally arrived for the Johannesburg 48HFP Meet & Greet and Workshop weekend!

We’ll start on Saturday with an information session so you can meet the 48 hour team, go through the rules and regulations and ask any questions. This is also a great opportunity to meet other filmmakers (competitors from other teams) and to find crew members to complete your teams. If you’re looking to join a 48 hour film project team, this is a great way to market yourself to registered teams. We’ll also hear from previous participants who took movie making to the next level and screen some of last year’s top films. We’ll end off the day with a word from our judges and some great team building games to prepare you for the exhilarating weekend of film making ahead, with some great prizes courtesy of the GFC.

On Sunday, you have the option of attending our Free Film Making Workshops, which will cover the basics of producing a short film in 48 hours! These will cover disciplines such as producing, writing, directing, editing, cinematography, sound and performance. And will be hosted by motivated industry professionals such as Isidingo actress Hlubi Mboya on performance, Rosie Motene on producing and director Adze Ugah of Zone 14, Jacob’s Cross and Society fame. This year we’ve paired the lecturers with previous participants to give you the inside scoop on producing a film in just 48 hours!
