International Online Film Competition
The 48 Go Green Competition, a nation-wide film competition with focus on environmental consciousness, calls on professional or amateur filmmakers to participate in this year’s session.
The rules are simple: all production and shooting of the film must be completed within the 48-hour duration of the festival. The topic of the film should focus on the assigned green theme. This is the third annual contest of the amateur film festival that started in Athens in 2009 and, after its big pilot success in Greece, is now going global and online.
The international 48 Hour Film Project, which inspired the Athens ecological version, has adopted the event and this year it is happening simultaneously on-line in cities and towns around the world, and as an "in person event" in 8 select cities.
The festival will take place on February 18-20. The winning film will be screened at the Cannes International Film Festival while the top 16 films will feature at the NAB Show in Las Vegas on April 9-14.
