Films are encouraged in Telugu, Tamil, Malayalam, Bengali, Hindi, English and any other languages. Any film that will be submitted after 7:30 will fall under the category of late films and will not be a part of the competition. However, the film will be screened along with the other films on April 14 at St Mary’s college.
The 48 Hour Film Project which has made its entry into Hyderabad this year, provides an opportunity to various budding filmmakers in the city to test their capabilities within a given limited time frame.
A workshop that was organised on Wednesday to provide an insight into how one can manage time and make the best out of the 48 hours given, saw the registration of around 30 teams, which is expected to go up to 50 atleast.
The workshop that took place on the premises of the Annapurna International School of Film and Media (AISFM), was headed by Kurt Inderbitzin, CEO of AISFM.
He advised the various partipants on smart filmmaking. Comparing the art of filmmaking to the process of throwing a party, or baking a cake, he pointed out that planning is an essential component of making a film.
Explaining further, he said, “Proper planning leads to division of work, which makes the tedious process of making a film, a lot more organised.
And, since there is a time constraint in this project, participants will have to make the best of the 48 hours and present a meaningful film, which conveys a message in the end.”
