Five 48 Hour Film Project Denver films

Categories: Film and TV

A scene from last year's winner "Unfurnished"
Last weekend, more than fifty teams of local filmmakers wrote, shot and edited entire film in 48 hours. Oh, and in case that wasn't enough of a challenge, the film they made had to be in a genre selected at random, and incorporate a line of dialogue and prop that was selected for them at the last minute.

Impressive, no? This was the latest iteration of the long-running 48 Hour Film Project, an international event that forces filmmakers to think on the fly, work under brutal conditions and, most of all, get things done fast. Believe it or not, the results are often pretty damn impressive, even if viewers aren't aware of the constraints under which the filmmakers were working. This Sunday, you can see results of the latest effort at the 48 Hour Film Project Premiere Screenings at the Gothic Theatre. To prepare, here's a selection of five of the best films from last year.

RunawayTrain Productions won the Best of Screening award last year with "Last Call," a short with maximum narrative punch contained within its brief run time, going from rock bottom to uplifting redemption in under seven minutes. The crew even managed a gunfight of sorts!
