Living in San Diego, we get to experience a lot of really cool events, like the one going on this weekend – The 48 Hour Film Festival Best of Screening and Awards Gala! I am so excited because my good friend Robyn is one of the producers and I can’t wait to see all her hard work pay off!
The 48 Hour Film Project returned to San Diego for its twelfth year on the weekend of July 24th-26th. More than 100 filmmaking teams, totaling more than 1400 filmmakers, had just 48 hours to write, shoot, edit, score, and submit their short films. On Friday night each team received a random genre, a character, a prop, and a line of dialogue all of which had to appear in their films.
All of the films were screened at the Reading Gaslamp Cinemas this past week and now it’s time for the Best of San Diego Screening and Awards Gala!
If you’d like to attend, join us at the Reading Gaslamp 15 Cinemas this Saturday, August 22nd, to see 14 of the best films made for this year’s competition, as well as to watch the presentation of the jury awards.
This is a full red carpet affair complete with live music and red carpet photographers. The red carpet opens at 5:00 PM with the show beginning at 6:00 PM. In addition, your ticket to the Best of San Diego includes the Wrap Party at the historic Horton Grand Hotel with appetizers and mingling with the filmmakers.
This is going to be an amazingly fun time! To purchase tickets to this exclusive event please click here.
