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.
