The Orlando 48 Hour Film Project has announced its dates. The kick-off event for filmmakers will be August 14 at 6 p.m., with films due at the drop-off location by 7:30 p.m. on August 16. In addition, three meet-ups are planned, the first coming this Friday at 7 p.m., at Wildside Bar & Grill, 700 East Washington Street, in Orlando.

The screenings, which are open to the public, will take place August 21-22. All locations, except the aforementioned meet-up, have yet to be announced.



The Orlando Project has a new producer this year. Kyle Snavely has taken over from Rob Ward. Snavely is a local filmmaker, former participant in the 48 Hour Film Project and senior instructional assistant in digital-media technology at Valencia Community College.

The 48 Hour Film Project is the world’s largest timed filmmaking competition. Participants have just two days to write, shoot and edit a short film after receiving an assigned genre, line of dialogue, prop and character name/trait. More than 100 cities around the world participate each year, with city-winning films going on to Filmapalooza, the international competition. Winners of that competition play the Cannes Film Festival.
