Mumbai, India 16 - 18 November 2018

It's Finally Here...

Filmmakers are taking over Mumbai and turning it into movie-making madness for 48 hours! Teams of filmmakers have a single weekend - this one - to write, shoot and edit their short films! All completed entries will be unveiled on the big screen, at our premiere screenings.

Here are some important notes for 48HFP filmmakers:

  • Elements: The required elements for Mumbai will be listed on this page after kickoff.
  • Media: You must submit your film according to the formats listed lower on this page.
  • Documents: You must submit releases for all team members, all music, all locations, and any other copyrighted material, as well as a team leader's agreement, a roster, and a certification statement. These forms can be downloaded from on our Production Documents page.
  • Rules: You should make sure that your film complies with our Filmmaking Rules and Competition Rules. If you have questions about the rules, the best place to go is our Frequently Asked Questions.
  • 48HFP Hotline: If you have a question during the filmmaking weekend, call the 48HFP Hotline. The number is on the Kickoff Info Sheet that your team representative was given at the kickoff. If you email us, you will probably not receive an answer in time, so please call.
  • Dropoff: Your film must be dropped off at the location listed on this page.

Be safe! Make great films! Good luck!

Teams have to physically drop off their films created in 48 hours at the venue. Only pen drives (and DVDs-- they still exist?) are allowed. Hard drives and laptops once accepted will not be returned! **wink wink** 

Please note:

7 pm is the deadline... with a grace period of 30 minutes. At 7:29:50, we begin a 10-second countdown. The films of all the teams in the queue for submission will be accepted as On Time films. Those who come in even a second after 7:30 pm, would be Late films. Late films will be accepted, but are not eligible for jury awards. All the films - on time and late- will be screened and are eligible for Audience Awards!
