We Challenge You To Create A Film In Just 48 Hours

Two Short Nights Film Festival returns to Exeter Phoenix this winter, bringing with it the famous 48 Hour Film Challenge. From first-time filmmakers to seasoned professionals, this inspiring (and free!) challenge sees teams from across the region compete to be crowned the Best 48 Hour Film at the annual short film festival.

No previous filmmaking experience is needed – just a good imagination and competitive spirit! Teams will be given a theme, a prop and a line of dialogue before setting off on their mission to test their creativity. Registration for the challenge closes on Wednesday 30th October, and the challenge itself will take place from Friday 1st – Sunday 3rd November. Successfully submitted films will be screened at Two Short Nights Film Festival, Exeter Phoenix’s annual celebration of all things short film, which takes place 27th – 29th November. Completed films will be in with a chance of winning a festival award.

If you think you and your team could plan, shoot and edit a film in just 48 hours, you can sign up for free. Teams can be any size but must include someone who is over 18.
