Raindance Film Festival  is happy to launch this year’s 48 Hour Film Challenge, in partnership with Lumix and The Reel Challenge. The challenge took place during the first weekend of the festival – between the 28th and 30th of September.

About the challenge

The idea is, well, simple to the extreme: they made a film, from conception to delivery, in only 2 days and 2 nights. Because, like we like to say in the Raindance HQ, you can sleep when it’s over.

However, simple doesn’t mean easy, and although the experience can be very intense, it can be even more rewarding. It’s a challenge, but we wouldn’t be in this industry if we didn’t like one, would we?

If you needed a bit more of an incentive, the guys at Lumix are lending us all the equipment we need to shoot the films. Additionally, you’ll get support from a Lumix expert to help you work around all those little details that always come up when using new equipment. It’s a fantastic opportunity to get some hands-on experience with some top-class cameras. Bear in mind you will need to use your own editing equipment.

Furthermore, the team from The Reel Challenge – a unique filmmaking adventure from London to Budapest – will be coordinating the whole weekend and will be available to provide support throughout the weekend.

Please note that content prompts will be handed out on the day to ensure that no-one is using content they have already created.
