Registration Is Now Open For 48 Hour Film Challenge 2021

Published November 27, 2020

Can you create a film in just 2 days?

The 48 Hour Film Challenge is back! This year all elements of the challenge can be completed remotely online. You can register your team, receive your brief and submit your final film all from the comfort of your own home. This means that in an exciting change to tradition, teams do not have to be based in Exeter to take part in the challenge.

Successful films will be shown as part of Two Short Nights Film Festival 2021.
