Dates for 48 Hr Film Project 2012 announced, casting crew needed, new RIFC classes

 February 28, 2012

Providence 48 Hr Film Project dates announced!

The RI Film Collaborative and the Providence 48 Hour Film Project announce the dates for the 2012 contest as Friday, July 13-Sunday July 15.
The 48 Hour Film Project is a wild and sleepless weekend in which you and a team make a movie-write, shoot, edit and score it-in just 48 hours.
On Friday night, you get a character, a prop, a line of dialogue and a genre, all to include in your movie. 48 hours later, the movie must be complete. Then it will show at a local theater, usually in the next week.
In 2011, nearly 60,000 filmmakers made 4,000 films in 96 cities on 6 continents. This year, we're even bigger, with filmmakers around the world taking the challenge to make a film in just 48 hours.

RIFC  member making non profit short film

Half Pint is a short dramatic film to motivate our youngest generation to talk to, and learn history from, the World War II generation.
The production will shoot on locations in Rhode Island and New Hampshire. The film is intended to motivate our youngest generation to talk to and learn from the WW II' generation (out greatest generation) about the history they made and experienced. The film will be shown at film festivals and be made available without charge  to WW II museums, schools, reenactment groups, and other non-profit historical educational organizations. This professionally produced film will transport our young viewers back in time with the use of wonderful locations, a talented cast and historically accurate WW II reenactor extra performers.
This project will be financed with this kickstarter.com campaign, as well as with grants and donations through our non-profit producing partner FLICKERS/Rhode Island International Film Festival (501C-3). The goal is to raise at least one third to one half of our budget from kickstarter, but more would be great. The more we raise, the better our project will be.
