The 48-Hour Filmmaking Challenge’s launch event will be held on November 30 from 5:30 – 6:00 pm at the Regina Public Library Film Theatre. At the launch, competing teams will receive the line, prop, and sound that they must include in their short films. This ensures that the films were created within the time allotted. The 48-hour timer begins as soon as the launch ends. Before the 48 hours are up, teams must submit their completed short films to qualify for the Screening Event, in which films will be screened and winners announced. If you are not able to attend the launch, qualifying line, prop and sound will be posted on RPL’s website at the time of the launch. Register your team at
