48 Hour Film Project banner Interested in contemporary Beijing arts & culture? You might know about Beijing's crazy cool designer hotels (Opposite House anyone?) and impressive post-budget-restraint architecture, and you probably know of the 798 Art Zone and other underground-to-mainstream mainstays of the booming (if occasionally busted) Beijing art scene. But for a look at what some of China's edgiest artists—its improvisational filmmakers—are up to, check out the screenings for the Beijing edition of the 48 Hour Film Project at the non-profit Ullens Center for Contemporary Art, this Friday August 6. Almost anything can happen in 48 hours, right? For more on the project, keep reading.... What is the 48 Hour Film Project you ask? Well, as their website tells us:
The 48 Hour Film Project is a wild and sleepless weekend in which you and a team make a movie—write, shoot, edit and score it—in just 48 hours...In 2009, nearly 40,000 filmmakers made 3,000 films in in 76 cities around the world.
It's too late to participate this year, but there's always next year. Fortunately you can skip all the hard work and just view the final products being screened this time round—and take measure of the competition while your at it... you might find the germ of inspiration alighting upon you... If you're more inclined to appreciate film rather than produce it, the event is sure to be full of laughs and a great place to bump elbows with other interesting people.
