48 HFP Finalists for 2012 Announced in SF

The judges have spoken.

This year, the jury consisted of Chris Bollini, Tony Grat, Samuel Sharkey, and Richard von Busack. Given the perspective of a veteran producer, an accomplished actor, a keen observer of the exhibition industry and underground cinema, and a seasoned film critic and student of cinema history — the results draw from a rich range of perspectives and insight.

Awards for the San Francisco 2012 48 Hour Film Project are now being assembled and these are the finalists. The final awards will be announced on July 15th at the Highlights and Awards show. ( Tickets are available here.)

    1. Well of course our hope is that you’ll join us for the Highlights show on Sunday, July 15th. Most of them will play there. Many of them can be found already by using the search string “48 Hour ” either at YouTube or Vimeo.

      You filmmakers, if that string does not bring up your movie, be sure to put in complete and accurate descriptions, including “48 Hour Film Project” and “San Francisco 2012” and your title as you gave it to us for the ballots. If you do that, we’ll do our part to make sure that searches reveal you as easily as possible.
