With over 30,000 short films to its name, The 48 Hour Film Project has earned its place as the largest film production competition in the world >.

And despite its international success, the competition has preserved its popular heritage and continues to offer exciting challenges for filmmakers of all levels.

The 48 Hour Film Project is a veritable film marathon that was exported to 150 cities around the world last September, and takes place, as its name suggests, in 48 hours only.

The principle is simple: after drawing lots for the genre of film to be produced, the participants had only two days to write, shoot and edit a work of five to seven minutes. At the end of these 48 hours, the short films were screened in each city of the competition and a jury of professionals awarded several prizes. It is therefore during the grand finale, Filmapalooza, that the best films are screened.


The 48 Hour Film Project, created in 2001 in the United States, aims to contribute to the development of the production and direction of short films, and above all to encourage budding directors to embark on the adventure of making a movie. This festival, present in most of the world’s major capitals, has become a successful international competition, the quality of the short films there always being surprising and rich.

Since 2014, ARTWORKS PRODUCTION produce and organize this festival exclusively in Tunisia.
