***Weekend Warriors Turn to Filmmaking to Test Stamina and Creativity*** To Represent Ghana at The World 48 Hour Film Competition
In the Ghana, Accra edition of the international 48 Hour Film Project, locals write, shoot and edit a 4 to 7-minute film in just one weekend.
People of all ages, skills and experience levels are welcome. Experienced and new filmmakers find that the deadline pushes them to end the weekend with a finished film – something that is very hard to do in the “real world”. According to Kingsley Nyarko, producer of the Ghana Accra 48 Hour Film Project “Filmmakers find that seeing their film on the big screen in front of a live audience is thrilling and an experience they will never forget.” “It is even more rewarding to present your film in-person to a global audience or a film festival for international distribution” He added.
All participating films shown are eligible for audience recognition, and those that are submitted on time are judged for various awards by a local filmmaker panel. The film selected as the overall “Best Film” at the premiere and awards ceremony to be held in September at The National Theatre of Ghana will be sent to the international 48HFP competition, Filmapalooza, to be screened and judged with over 100 city winners from around the globe. From there, 12 films will be chosen to screen in the Short Film Corner at the Cannes International Film Festival.
