Winter Film Awards 48-Hour Film Challenge

Winter Film Awards 4th Annual 48-Hour Film Challenge - What can YOU do in 48 hours?

Winter Film Awards challenges the local film community to create a short film under insane rules in just a single caffeinated weekend!  Over $13k in prizes to be awarded ! Winning films to be screened at the 2017 Winter Film Awards Independent Film Festival!

IMPORTANT!!!   The challenge is restricted to THIRTY teams.  To ensure you get a spot, please REGISTER.  Registration is $10 per team.

WHAT IS A 48-HOUR FILM CHALLENGE??
WINTER FILM AWARDS challenges the local 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.

Completed films are uploaded to YouTube to garner the coveted “Fan Favorite” vote. All films are then screened at a local venue the following weekend and prizes are awarded for Best Picture, Fan Favorite and more!

Visit WinterFilmAwards.com for more information!

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. For the 2014 Challenge, teams had to include Citibike in their story line. Visit the WFA YouTube playlist to view all of the amazing films. What can we possibly come up with next??

The Challenge is limited to 30 teams and you must have access to NYC to take part in the Challenge.  See the Challenge FAQ for more info!
