It’s the place for students who want to make movies.  Whether you are an experienced filmmaker or just getting started, the High School 48 has something for you.


The 48 Hour Film Project is an international filmmaking competition that is celebrating 20 years.  In that time, more than 50,000 short films have been made in cities around the world. Our top films screen annually at Filmapalooza and at the Short Film Corner of the Cannes Film Festival.  The 48HFP has been the launching pad for the careers of hundreds of our filmmakers and has helped filmmakers make the leap from short film to feature.


If you are someone who is interested in film and is looking for a way to learn more and show off your creativity, the High School 48 is for you.
