Lights, Camera, Activism at the 48 Go Green Film Competition

Film Competition Starting Feb. 18, the 48 Hour Film Project presents aspiring filmmakers with a new challenge: go green or go home. Like past 48 Hour Film events, the contest challenges contestants to make a short film — including writing, shooting, and editing — in just 48 hours. Filmmakers choose their genre but are randomly assigned a character, prop, line of dialogue, and most importantly, an environmental theme. This year's eco-themes include energy, forests, the sea, and the next generation.

Winners get up to $5,000 and have their film screened at the Cannes Short Film Corner; judging is based on the number of public votes received online rather than critical reaction.

Francesco Vitali, the festival's executive producer, said, "It would be a good start for film critics, instead of judging and criticizing films and other people’s emotions, to pick up a camera themselves and take part in the creation of a film.”
