GL48 Film Slam Details


You have 48-hours to make an 8-minute short film. Yup, keep that coffee coming because 48 hours is all you got!

Enter your team for $60 by June 19th ($80 after June 19th), and you could win $700, $200 or $100!

Friday, June 26th, at 6:00 pm all teams meet at Ghostlight Creative. Your team randomly draws a genre, and we assign a line of dialogue that must be in your film. We explain the rules in detail (you get an official packet), and off you go into a whirlwind of rush, creativity and insomnia.

Sneak preview
You will send us a link to download your web-ready video by Sunday, June 28th at 9:00 pm. Three judges from the industry will use your review and score your film based on three categories:

  1. Story: plot, conflict, resolution
  2. Directing & Acting: execution of story, cinematography
  3. Technical: how well your choice of tools communicates the story

You will also submit a high-quality hard copy of your film by Monday, June 29th, 5:00 p.m. for the Screening. Both files are needed to fulfill submission requirements.


Join us Sunday, July 12th, 1:00 p.m. at Tricky Falls to view the best of the best.
