48 Hour Film Project in Tunis

tunis48 250Based on the successful experience of its first edition in 2014, The 48 Hour Film Project will be back in Tunis this year for 2 days of intense film writing, shooting and editing, from October 2 at 6 pm (Kickoff Meeting) to October 4 at 7.30 pm, when the completed short films have to be delivered to the organizers, chaired by Artworks Production.

The 48 Hour Film Project is the world oldest and largest timed filmmaking competition, initiated in 2001 by Mark Ruppert and Liz Langston in the Usa and soon gone global. In 2015 a total of 130 cities will host the challenge. More then 30,000 short films have been produced so far.

At the Kickoff Meeting each participating team will select a genre among those proposed for 2015, including buddy film, comedy, dark comedy, detective/cop, drama, fantasy, film de femme, fish out of water, holiday film, horror, musical or western, romance, science fiction, thriller/suspense. Adventurous teams can also trade their selected genre with a Wild Card, proposing one of the following: action/adventure, coming of age, espionage, family film, inspirational film, mockumentary, period piece, superhero.

Awards are foreseen for best director, screenplay, editing, actors, music and more.

A limited number of teams can be accommodated, based on a first come first served policy, with a fee of 200 dinars. Should a team give up, additional teams will be selected from the waiting list. To register, visit the 48 Film Project/Tunis web page (in French only).


The produced films will be screened in Tunis’ cinemas on October 7 and 8, 2015.
