On Friday, May 10, you and your teammates will be assigned a character, a prop, a line of dialogue and a genre, all to include in your movie.

By Sunday, May 12, the movie must be complete.

Each completed film is guaranteed a screening at The Hollywood Central Performing Arts Center, in the following week.

Registration costs $175 per team. Space is limited. To be part of the 48HFP, register online at 48hourfilm.com/miami

In addition to a $5,000 cash grand prize for the overall world winner, winners receive an invitation to Filmapalooza, the year-end competition for the 48 Hour Film Project, where more than 110 films from around the world, representing the Best 48 Hour Film from each of their respective cities, are screened.

With the opportunity to push creativity to new levels, films created for the 48 Hour Film Project have gone on to win awards at numerous film festivals. Ten of the best films of the 2013 tour will be screened at the Cannes Film Festival’s Short Film Corner in 2014.

Best of all, there’s tons of fun and opportunities to meet some of the coolest people, including at the 7 p.m. Friday, May 3 Meet and Greet/Casting Call.
