The 48 Hour Film Project comes to Dubai once again on the weekend of 7 - 9 November 2013. Filmmakers from all over the United Arab Emirates will compete to see who can make the best short film in only 48 hours. The winning film will go up against films from around the world.

Teams will be accepted on a first come-first-served basis, and are advised to register by the 31st October deadline, both to maximise their chances of being accepted in this increasingly popular competition as well as take advantage of the 645 AED entry fee. Entries after this date will be charged at 735 AED, subject to space.

Teams will then gather on Thursday, November 7th at sponsors Advanced Media Trading in Al-Quoz, where they will be given a genre, a character, a prop, and a line of dialogue they must work into their film. Films submitted even 1-minute late at 7:00pm on November 9th will be disqualified.

This year, Dubai will be one of a record 125 cities worldwide – from Beijing to Lisbon - competing in the 48 Hour Film Project. Submitted films will be screened for the public and judged by a panel of experts. The Best Film from Dubai will then be awarded and will be in the running for top honors in New Orleans at Filmapalooza 2014, the 48 Hour Film Project’s annual international film festival. The top 15 films from this world-wide event will screen at the prestigious Cannes Film Festival Short Film Corner.
