48 hours, extended

The 48 Hour Film Project is returning to New Mexico. Your chance to register a filmmaking team is rapidly dwindling. Teams are being accepted on a first-come, first-served basis. As of July 1, registration costs have jumped. But organizers are offering a 4th of July special. You can save $35 per team by registering for the early bird price of $140 using the code ABQEXTEND. The actual event takes place July 11 through 13. Filmmakers from all over the state will compete to see who can make the best short film in only 48 hours. The winning film will go up against films from around the world.
