48 Hours 2008

48Hours is officially NZ's largest film competition! It's a cinematic boot camp, but instead of a drill sergeant screaming obscenities at you it's the constant tick-tocking of the countdown clock. 48Hours is a serious challenge for both first time filmmakers through to experienced directors. Filmmaking teams have just one weekend to make a short film. This collection from 2008 contains the finalists and 'Best of the Rest' from each region. Includes Peter Jackson's Wildcard selections and the Grand National Winner, 'F* Dance'.
