The 48 Hour Film Project is a wild and sleepless weekend in which you and a team make a movie – write, shoot, and edit – in just 48 hours. On Friday night, teams draw a genre from a hat. They are then given a character, prop and line to include in their films. On Sunday night, in a wild dash to the drop off event, the film is turned in – and teams celebrate. The film is then screened at a local theater in front of an audience of filmmakers, friends and families.
The 48HFP is the world’s oldest and largest timed filmmaking competition – the granddaddy of them all. If you want the real deal, this is it. The 48HFP is all about creativity and fun. It’s also about community. For years the 48HFP has been helping local creative people connect to make films. These connections go beyond filmmaking – taking part in the 48 helps people find friends, collaborators, jobs and even girlfriends & boyfriends! There are even some 48HFP married couples out there!
This year, filmmakers from all over the Albuquerque, NM area will compete to see who can make the best short film in only 48 hours. The winning film will go up against films from around the world at Filmapalooza 2017 for a chance at the grand prize and an opportunity to screen at the Cannes Film Festival 2017, Court Métrage.
We believe in social profit and leverage our resources to that end. We believe in cooperation and collaboration and recognize that our mission cannot be accomplished without the synergy of shared visionaries. Whether helping a screenwriter understand the craft or introducing filmmakers to finance and distribution resources, all of our efforts ultimately aim to bring audiences to the theater to experience the wonder of humanity. By bringing people together – who are often strangers at the start, but soon become friends, neighbors and engaged participants by the end- we create unique events that build community in support of the power we call story. We are a community of storytellers. We bring storytellers and filmmakers together to support, encourage and share the stories that connect us to the world around us and to each other. We believe stories and the filmmakers who reveal them on screen have the ability to shape our world for the better through original voices and visions.

As Albuquerque’s Latino Film Festival, iCine Magnífico! is proud to hold a position of great importance within our community. As many of us know and have felt throughout our lives, the experience of cinema and film has the ability to lift us, to join us, to inspire us and to expose us to an abundance of places, cultures, languages, characters, and ways of life in the Hispanic world. In particular, these films are hand selected with great care and attention for our local community. The film selection reflects what matters to us here in Albuquerque, and these issues are presented through a view out into the world that connects with us and influences us, just as we connect with and influence it in return.
Also, through our festival, we engage with the greater local community comprised of people from businesses, organizations and educational and cultural institutions. As we gather to enjoy these films, we experience this mutual network of support. ¡Cine Magnífico! is a wonderful bridge that joins connects us to each other in amazing ways, and we look forward to continuing that tradition going forward.
This year, Cine Magnifico will be September 15-19 at the Guild Cinema and the National Hispanic Cultural Center.

The Albuquerque Film Club is open to everyone of any age who enjoys watching movies on a big screen in the company of other film lovers and then sharing observations about what they have seen. This is a social rather than scholarly group, although some members know a lot about motion pictures while others wish to expand their appreciation.
Our purpose is to revive interesting films from silent classics to productions of the big studio era to intimate independent films of more recent years—comedies, dramas, film noir, fantasy, adventure. While most of the movies we screen will be English language, we shall include intriguing films from abroad. The films you attend will help choose future programs in the AFC series.
The AFC is a non-profit, all volunteer club.
Your participation is welcomed.
All that is required for membership is an interest and an email address for notification of upcoming events. For information about the Albuquerque Film Club’s events, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
