The 48 Hour Film Project is an annual competition in which teams write, shoot and edit a complete film (no more than 7 minutes in length) in 48 hours. More than 120 cities around the globe host competitions. The winners are presented at the annual Filmapalooza, and ten top films are screened at the Cannes Film Festival. (New Orleans is a finalist to host Filmapalooza 2014.) The Perfunctory Discord (above) was the audience award winner from New Orleans' 2012 competition.
The 2013 New Orleans competition takes place Friday, July 26 to Sunday, July 28. Completed films will be screened Aug. 1-2 at the National World War II Museum.
There is a mixer from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m. Friday, July 11 at The Big Top for anyone interested in learning more, putting together a team or joining a team in need of help.
The overall 2012 winner (below) came from Paris. More New Orleans 2012 New Orleans Films after the jump.
