This year’s Little Rock 48 Hour Film Project was produced by the Little Rock Film Festival. More than 100 filmmakers comprising 21 different teams competed in this year’s event. Entries will be screened in two blocks, one on Thursday and one on Friday.
Audience members will have the opportunity to vote for their favorite film during screenings and an Audience Favorite Award will be given to the team receiving the most votes.
The 48 Hour Film Project challenges filmmakers to produce a short film in only 48 hours based on a topic given to them at the start of the competition. The 2010 competition started at 7:00 p.m. on Friday, August 20, when event organizers announced that this year’s required elements were a character named Geoff or Georgia Cooke who is a camp counselor, a tire or wheel as a required prop, and the line of dialog “Here we go again.” Before filmmakers were given the required elements, each team drew for a film genre. Teams were required to turn-in their completed film at 7:30 p.m. on Sunday, August 22.
All entries meeting the 48 hour deadline are eligible for the Best Film Award judged this year by Ben Fry, General Manager of KUAR/KLRE; David Fowlkes, Producer/Director of Dogtown Picture Show; and Greg Brown, Screening Committee Member of the Hot Springs Documentary Film Festival and a professor at the University of Central Arkansas.
Of the 21 teams competing, 16 will be eligible for the award. The other five will still be screened and will be eligible for the Audience Favorite Award. The winner of the Best Film prize will go on to compete in the International 48 Hour Film Project competition featuring the top city winners of more than 80 cities around the world.
