About the Event

Newcastle Film Club is gathering a team of cast and crew for the Royal Television Society's 48 Hour Film Event. 

WE NEED YOU! Come along and help us write, shoot and edit the film in 48 hours. 

On Friday, RTS will be giving us the title of our film along with any other requirments that will be needed for our film (such as if we need to include a certain line of dialouge, prop, etc.). Once we have our requirements, we get to writing! 

Saturday is all about shooting! This is the day we'll need our CAST and actors within the North East! However, we do encourage cast to attend the Friday kick off meeting so that you can join in the script writing process!

Sunday is the day we finish the film! The editor will be working to take everything we shot Saturday and turning that into a finished 3 minute short film. The film itself is due to RTS by 7 pm, and we'll have a small wrap party to celebrate and watch what we made together. 

All locations for this event will be within the city centre or within walking / bus distance to city centre. 

See the Schedule Section for a detailed breakdown of the weekend.
