If you ever get antsy sitting in a two and a half hour movie, head to the Belcourt tonight and tomorrow night for an evening guaranteed to entertain even the most attention-span-challenged Nashvillians among us. Four collections of 7-minute (tops) films made by local filmmakers during this year’s 48 Hour Film Project will screen tonight and tomorrow night. There will be good, there will be bad, and there will definitely be ugly, but variety is the spice of life, right?
Over 50 teams participated in this year’s 48 Hour Film Project in Nashville, which took place the weekend of July 30. Each team was assigned a random theme, and was required to use the a common character, prop and line of dialogue (just to make the piece-of-cake task of filming an entire movie in 48 hours just a little more challenging). The 53 completed films are split into four groups for their screenings, because even at 7 minutes apiece, that’s a whole lotta film. If you’re really ambitious (and have a lot of free time), the Belcourt is offering a special rate of just $20 to all four screenings. You’ll probably laugh, you might even cry, but you’ll be supporting a bunch of crazy local filmmakers who lost a weekend of sleep for this project.
