At the opening ceremony, each team had to randomly select genre from among horror, comedy, romance, musical and many more to make a film that runs from four to seven minutes.

The teams will each be given three elements – a character, a prop and a line of dialogue – and then 48 hours to make a film incorporating them.

The message of this year’s competition is 'Inside a filmmaker's head’, the organisers said.

An awards ceremony will be held on December 5 with prizes worth US$7,730 given away and training opportunities offered.

The winners of the contest will represent Việt Nam at the international final round Filmapalooza. Over 150 cities will participate in that with the winners having their films screened at the Cannes Film Festival.

The 11th edition of 48HFP is organised by Capital Studio, Co-Lab Việt Nam and HKFilm in collaboration with Box Collective.
