48 Hour Film Project @CERN, 1-3 July 2016


Do you like technology? Would you like to travel trough the time – or through the space?!? look for your aliens, spaceships, and parallel universes, and get ready for a weekend to never forget!!

The 48 Hour Film Project, that celebrates its 8th year in Switzerland, is both a competition and an opportunity for amateurs and professionals to see their films on the big screen. That’s the chance to stop talking and start filming. The starting point? The teams have just one weekend to make a short film. The whole creative process – scriptwriting, shooting, editing, and original soundtrack – must be done in 48 hours, from Friday evening 7 p.m. to Sunday evening 7 p.m. 

For the first time in Europe, a special edition of the 48 Hour Film Project – only about Science Fiction – will take place at CERN physics laboratory. The participants, during the launch event on Friday night, will have the opportunity to consult with physicists and other scientists about the creation of their Science Fiction stories. The filmmakers will compete to create the best short science fiction in just 48 hours.

The winning film will be screened at Filmapalooza 2017, in the United States! The winner of the 48 Hour Film Project Science Fiction in Geneva will also compete with other winners of the 48 Hour Film Project Switzerland (Geneva and Lausanne) for airline tickets, camera, and more! 

All the movies from the Science Fiction contest will be projected during the CineGlobe Film Festival at CERN, from 6 to 10 July. The filming weekend will take place from Friday 1st to Sunday 3rd July, with the launch at CERN on Friday evening at 7 p.m.
