i48 is a 48-hour film competition where, each June, teams of filmmakers from around Idaho have 48 hours to write, pre-produce, cast, shoot, and edit an original short film three to six minutes long. Each team is assigned four previously undisclosed elements that must be incorporated into their movie: 1) a line of dialogue, 2) a prop, 3) a character, and 4) the genre for their film. A week later, all completed films will be screened at the Flicks in Boise, Idaho, with a “Best Of i48” Screening and Awards Ceremony at the Egyptian Theatre.

Awards will be given in each category for Best Film, 2nd Best Picture, Best Actor, Best Actress, Best Sound/Music, Best Cinematography, Best Use of Prop, Best Use of Line of Dialogue, and Best Use of Character. Cash prizes will be awarded to the teams winning Best Film and 2nd Best Film in both the Open and Novice Divisions.

Started in 2004, i48 is going into our 15th year. We've grown and expanded, and now incorporate 3 events a year - i48 in June, h48 (the horror version of i48) in October, and just starting, the i48 February Challenge, where teams have 28 days to complete a 10 minute short.
