June 11 @ 6:00 pm - June 13 @ 6:00 pm

11-13 June 2021
The 48 Film Festival (aka. The 48) is a brand new Canada-wide short filmmaking challenge -- for one weekend, participants will write, shoot, direct, score, edit and finish a short film in 48 hours.

All filmmakers who register and complete their film by the deadline will be screened locally in each participating province and territory, then the top 2 films selected from each province and territory will appear together on the big screen at the TIFF Bell Lightbox in Toronto in March 2022.

For filmmakers on Vancouver Island and the Gulf Islands, CineVic is resurrecting the FILM SLAM! name from our time-crunch filmmaking challenges in the early 2000s.
