A gateway to the filmmaking world

Everyone can participate at the 48HFP. It really doesn't matter if shooting is your profession, you are a student of a film school, passionate self-taught filmmaker or you just want to try something new. For beginners, the "48" is a gateway to the filmmaking world, for experienced ones a great test of their skills. To write, shoot and finish a short film in just 48 hours is a big challenge.

An interesting idea matters, not the gear you have. The most expensive camera itself has never made a great film. Simply create a team from your friend, register it and enjoy this unforgettable weekend.

Hundreds of films made

Comedies, horrors, dramas. And stars on a big screen

Hundreds of short film were made by filmmakers during the eight previous editions of Prague 48HFP. Comedies, thrillers, horrors, mockumentaries, romances and action movies, period pieces. The bond of all the films are always the required character, line of a dialogue and a prop, which gives a very interesting dimension to the audiences experience watching the film at the premiere.

Many Czech famous acrtos and actresses took part in the Prague 48 hour films. For example, Jiří Bartoška, Karel Heřmánek, Václav Postránecký, Hana Vágnerová a many others.
