The National Assn. of Broadcasters has teamed with the filmmaking org 48 Hour Film Project to host a movie-making competition at the upcoming NAB confab in Las Vegas.
The Washington, D.C.-based 48 Hour Film Project hosts contests in various cities that challenge contestants to shoot, edit and score a short about a pre-assigned subject in two days. The NAB confab in Las Vegas, which runs April 18-23, will serve as the setting for a 48 Hour Film Project competish to be held April 17-19. Entries will be judged by a panel of helmers, producers and critics and screened at a local Sin City theater.
In 2010, 48 Hour Film Project will hold its Filmapalooza awards for the best shorts from its various competitions during the NAB confab.
