The 48 Hour Film Project: Best of the Screenings from the Film Competition

The 48 Hour Film Project

A competition for do-it-yourself filmmakers: they're given a genre, a prop, a character and a line of dialogue. The rest is up to them! AFI Silver welcomes back the 12th edition of the wildly popular 48 Hour Film Project, with this year's Washington, DC-area films screening May 9 through 12, followed by the "Best Of" 2013 screenings on May 23.

Shows tend to sell out - Tickets go on sale May 6 - $15.00

Each screening of the 48 Hour Film Project is different, featuring a unique program of films. For individual show schedules and information about the 48 Hour Film Project, visit 48hourfilm.com.

Best Of[masked] Hour Film Project
Thu, May 23, 7:00, 9:30

Note from your host:  Since I am trekking to Silver Springs from VA, I plan to buy tickets for the 9:30PM show.  I plan to pick a place a spot for dinner, and then see the show.  Keep in mind the date is the Thursday before Memorial Day weekend, so it is a great night to start the holiday earlier.

  • Kimbers

    absolutely rocked! Had a great time watching some great short films!

    I'm here @ La Malinche.

    Heads Up!: Apparently each showing has different films. So the films shown at 9:30 are different from those shown at 7PM. There is an awards ceremony after the 9:30PM showing. Although it sounds interesting, I doubt I will be able stay for the entire awards ceremony. Plan accordingly.

    Sounds good - I should get there sometime between 7 and 7:15.

    Let's meet at La Malinche around 7PM or a little after for a pre-show dinner.

    Ah alas 930 is too late for me as well, so I will have to bow out. Hope the rest of you have fun!

    The film is Thursday not Wednesday, right? I like Ethiopian

    May 20, 2013

    • Kimbers

      Yes it is Thursday. Hopefully most of us will have a slow pre-holiday weekend Friday. :)

    Although there are tons of restaurants, I thought I would throw out some possibilities for a pre-film dinner: Romano's Macaroni Grill(Italian including GF Pasta - http://www.macaronigrill.com/), Abol (Ethiopian - ), La Malinche (Spanish/Mexican Tapas - http://www.lamalinchetapas.com/). All of these are across the street from AFI.

    If you prefer one of these or have another recommendation, please post it. I will post a place/time for us to meet before the film showing Wednesday night.

      La Malinche looks best to me (sopapillas - yum). I'd be OK with Macaroni Grill. Abol would probably be too adventurous for me (dietary restrictions = somewhat plain, not too spicy food).

      May 20, 2013

  • Katherine

    I will go if you decide to do the 7, but 930 would be too late for me. Thanks for organizing!

    Tentative yes. Why did meetup get rid of maybe?

    May 19, 2013

  • Kimbers

    Hi Everyone - I've bought my ticket for the 9:30PM show.

    May 7, 2013

    • Colleen

      I bought my ticket for 9:30 also.

      May 8, 2013

  • Colleen

    I can go at either time, but I'd rather do dinner first (I'll be coming straight from work) so 9:30 is better for me.
