The 48 Hour Film Project is a wild and sleepless weekend in which you and a team make a movie (write, shoot, edit and score) in just 48 hours!

Since 2016, the Indy Film Fest has been proud to be the producer for the Indianapolis 48 Hour Film Project. What makes the Indy 48HFP special? Besides the amazing filmmakers who participate, of course, all the films screen during our 10-day festival in May and the winners are screened a second time as part of our day dedicated to award winners.

Stay up to date by signing up for the official Indianapolis 48HFP newsletter.
