48 Hours in Frankfort

June 10, 2023

Roll the cameras—the Frankfort48 Film Contest is full of action this weekend! The contest is the trial grounds for the local films and filmmakers who make it into the Garden Theater’s Frankfort48 Film Festival in October. These aren’t films folks have worked on for months or years; instead, participants are given just 48 hours (thus the name) to create a 3-5 minute short after being given a line from a movie, a prop, and a location to creatively incorporate in their film. After a whirlwind weekend, the films will be screened on Sunday, June 18, at 8pm at the Garden Theater in Frankfort. A panel of judges will select the top three films to receive prizes and extra air time at the festival in the fall. For more details or to sign up to participate—note: there’s a max of 20 entrants—head to gardentheater.org/frankfort48.
