"The #48film Project is a unique opportunity for filmmakers to express creativity. Whether novice, professional or veterans - all submissions are judged equally. Beyond the competition, the #48FILM Project is a festival of opportunity. Selected works are presented to industry decisionmakers,"
said Francesco Vitali, 48FILM Project Executive Producer, "we understand that the explosion of streamed entertainment created a seemingly unlimited need for quality entertainment. Concurrently production has evolved. Theatrically released films are being filmed on mobile phones. Virtually everyone is now able to create from the very devices they use on a day-to-day basis: mobile phone and a computer - making it possible for anyone to participate. The barriers to entry in the filmmed entertainment arena are all but gone. Over the years our winners have taught us new levels of ingenuity and shown us true creativity, which is why we encourage corporations and individuals alike to view the winning entries: you may find your next feature film/commercial/
industrial director, writer, actor amongst our entries."
