FILM FRENZY: 48-Hour Projects To Be Screened

48 hour film

In just 48 hours, teams from across Iowa wrote, filmed and edited 50 short films.

Fleur Cinema will showcase the films Wednesday and Thursday night at 7 p.m. and 9:45 p.m.

50 teams drew random genres Friday and then handed in their films Sunday evening.

This is the 9th annual 48-hour film project in Des Moines.

One film will win the Best of City award, $1,000 and a chance to screen at the Cannes Film Festival.

Des Moines is one of 135 cities worldwide to compete.
