48 Hour Film Project

On July 12, filmmakers in 125 cities worldwide - from Pittsburgh to Libson - will participate  in 48 Hour Film Project. They will be given a genre, a character, a prop, and a line of dialogue they must work into a short film. They have 48 hours to complete a 4 to 7 minute movie. Submitted films will be screened for the public in each city and judged by  a panel of experts. In Pittsburgh, that screening will take place at the Hollywood Theater. THe best films then will be in the running for top honors at Filmapalooza 2013, the 48 Hour Film Project's annual awards. The top 12 films from Filmapalooza will then screen at the prestigious Cannes Film Festival Short Film Corner. Pittsburgh's winner will be shown 7 p.m., Sunday July 28. Both the July 20th and 28th are $8 general admission, $6 students/kids/seniors.
