The 48 Hour Film Project at Celluloid Bainbridge 2016

The Celluloid Bainbridge Film Festival is proud to announce that the winning film of this year’s Seattle 48 Hour Film Project will be presented at the 2016 festival on November 6th on Bainbridge Island.

Just a ferry ride away from downtown Seattle, Celluloid Bainbridge is an annual festival celebrating great works of film from Bainbridge Island, Seattle, and the Pacific Northwest.

The 48 Hour Film Project, now in its twelfth year, is a fast-paced and exciting event where hundreds of filmmakers in Seattle create incredible short films in just one weekend.

These shorts are written, filmed, & edited in less than 48 hours after teams of filmmakers are randomly assigned certain criteria such as the genre of the movie they have to make, a character they need to include, as well as a prop & line of dialogue. All of which must be worked into a 4-7 minute short film and turned in for judging in less than 48 hours to qualify. Films are then judged by professionals and peers to choose winners for a list of categories including “Best of Seattle.”  

The films made each year are staggeringly impressive, and Celluloid is happy to offer placement of this year’s winning film.
