The Albuquerque 48 Hour Film Project Celebrates 10 Years of Albuquerque Movie Making
**Filmmakers, actors, musicians, artists, creative masochists and insomniacs are invited for this year’s 48 Hour Film Project***
(Albuquerque) The Albuquerque 48 Hour Film Project (48HFP) is celebrating its 10-year anniversary - bringing back another adrenaline-fueled weekend of filmmaking. On the weekend of July 24 teams of local filmmakers will have 48 hours to write, shoot and edit short films which will screen just days later at the KiMo Theatre. Registration opens on June 2.
This year Liz Langston, Albuquerque resident and Co-Founder of the international 48HFP is attending the Cannes Film Festival where she willscreen the top twelve 48HFP short films from around the world.
In Albuquerque, the first event of the season is a Meet and Greet to help teams form. The event, held in conjunction with the Albuquerque Film and Music Experience (AFME), is June 3 from 5:30 – 7:30 at Adieux Café across from the KiMo Theatre. All are welcome to attend.
Albuquerque’s 48 Hour Film Project has brought together some of the most creative and productive indie filmmaking groups in the city. One of last year’s short films, “The Joneses” has won many film festival awards and is currently being made into a feature film by a local film team headed by Alejandro Montoya.
Last year’s Albuquerque winning film “Imagining Vera” represented Albuquerque at the Filmapalooza film festival in Hollywood. It can be seenhere.
