Somerville MA: a bunch of fun short films, this evening, FREE

The 48 Hour Film Project is a contest held in cities around the country. Teams of amateur filmmakers sign up, and at the appointed time, they're all given a line and a prop they have to use in a short film. Then each team draws a different genre out of a hat (comedy, action, horror, sci fi, western, documentary, ...) and have to submit a completed short film by the deadline 48 hours later.

somehedgehog participated in a team that competed in the Boston 48HFP in 2004, which is how I first heard of it and signed up for the mailing list. Most amusingly, her team pulled "Science Fiction" for their genre, and came up with a surprisingly intricate plot for such a quick project. It was most amusing!

The 2006 Boston 48HFP is coming in April, but they're having a preview and meet'n'greet this evening at Good Time Emporium in Somerville this evening. They're going to be showing some of the best films from 2004 (including Rubbers, which was hilarous!!) and 2005.

Details posted on the Boston 48HFP page and here:
