Make a film in 48 hours? No problem, says Adelaide

Australian input to the global 48 Hour Film Project is back, at least in Adelaide with a crazed weekend of massed production.

Despite the pandemic, the annual 48 Hour Film Project is proceeding in some 130 cities around the world over 2021 involving a claimed 60,000 people. In Australia its most consistent centre is Adelaide, which is running its sixth weekend between 30 April and 2 May.

The weekend usually rolls out around the world over October-November. The Adelaide event is delayed until now; there are producers in Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane, who may emerge at some unspecified time later in the year.
