48 Go Green

Tomorrow (March 4th) is the very last day of voting for the '48 Go Green' film competition! It's an international contest that calls for filmmakers and producers to make green-themed films–but they only have 48 hours to do so. All the projects are submitted and, with your votes, the online festival will narrow it down to the top eight selections by Friday!


48 Go Green, which was inspired by the 48 Hour Film Project, got started in Athens, Greece back in 2009. It was such a big hit that organizers decided to take it global. Filmmakers can choose any style of fiction film, from comedy to romance to mockumentry–as long as it has an eco-theme. This year, 183 people took part around the world. And the winning film will be screened at the Cannes Film Festival plus $5,000.00–not a bad prize!


You can watch last year's winning film and screen all the official entries for this year, too, so cast your votes!
