Beirut Film Institute is the official sponsor and organizer of the Beirut 48 Hour Film project - the world's largest timed filmmaking competition, where we challenge you, and your team to make a short film in only 48 hours. Get yourselves ready for a wild and sleepless weekend in which you and a team make a movie - write, shoot, and edit - in just 48 hours. The winning film will go up against films from around the world at FILMAPALOOZA for a chance to win the grand prize and an opportunity to screen at the CANNES FILM FESTIVAL short film corner.

Registered teams attend the Kickoff Event on the 29th of July 2022 in Beirut Film Institute .

At the Kickoff:
- Each team receives the genre for its film in a random drawing.
- The required elements are announced - a character, a prop and a line of dialogue - each of which must appear in all films.

Then it is off to the races!! Filmmakers have just 48 hours to write, shoot and edit their film.

At the Dropoff Event, teams submit their film along with the required paperwork.

The Question is, CAN YOU MAKE IT?!
