Film Festival ︎ 48 Hour Film Challenge





Make a film from scratch over the weekend!


Vagabond Film Festival will launch the 4th Annual 48 Hour Film Challenge which will take place between Friday 20 July and Sunday 22 July.

Professional and amateur filmmakers are invited to form teams and take part in a 48 Hour Filmmaking Challenge taking place in Milton Keynes this Summer as part of Vagabond Film Festival. Each team undertakes to produce, direct, edit and submit a short film within 48 hours which will then be judged and prizes awarded.




‘This year's 48 Hour Film Challenge will be an exciting part of the very first Vagabond Film Festival in Milton Keynes. This is a fantastic opportunity for experienced filmmakers and those new to making films, to create a unique short film over a weekend using their creativity and story-telling skills.’ – Davin Jeayes from the Milton Keynes Film Network
