See the Best of the Albuquerque 48 Hour Film Project 2013. Winning films will be announced. The film making teams will be in attendance. Filmmakers had just 48 hours to write, shoot and edit these 7 minute films. Concessions available.
Earlier this month teams of filmmakers took to the streets of Albuquerque with one goal in mind: write, shoot, edit and premiere a 7-minute film in only two days. On July 18 and 19, the KiMo Theatre played host to the 48 Hour Film Project, screening more than four dozen short films that resulted from the Albuquerque leg of this year’s fest. Filmmakers were all given a character, a line of dialogue and a prop to work into their mini-masterpieces. Each filmmaking team was also assigned a genre to work in—from romantic comedy to sci-fi to film noir. Now you can see the fruits of those labors in an easily digested form. On Thursday, July 25, KiMo (423 Central NW) will screen The Best of 48 Hour Films 2013. The best local films, as chosen by a panel of judges, will be shown starting at 7:30 p.m. Immediately after the screening, awards will be handed out. The winning shorts have a shot at competing against films from other cities at the prestigious Cannes Film Festival. There will be an afterparty following the awards ceremony at Sister (407 Central NW) just down the street. Tickets are $10 and are available now at kimotickets.com.
