The event which is organised by Marbella International Film Festival, in association with New World Trust and with the support of “The Marbella Film Office”, offers a great opportunity for filmmakers to add to their credits and demonstrate their talent to world audiences.

 In the past years The Marbella 24 hour film challenge has attracted many talented filmmakers, who created some outstanding work, scripted, shot, edited, and submitted for screening in only 24 hours.

This year the Festival is aiming to increase the participation in this exciting event, by offering a subsidised package for accommodation and festival accreditations to the festival, attracting film makers from all over the world, to make movies, and show off their talent.

 How it works:

The Filmmaker with cast and crew, ( or just alone, with a camera and laptop!) is challenged to make a 3 to 4 minute short film on a given  subject matter, the task is to write a script, direct the actors, shoot the film, edit, sound and music, and deliver the film in 24 hours.

 All films will be screened and judged as part of Marbella International Film Festival, and the best film will receive the prestigious Marbella 24 hour film challenge 2011 Award.

The runners up will receive a certificate of recognition and all participants will receive a certificate of participation.

 Over the years many participants of the Marbella 24 hour film challenge have discovered this event to be a most helpful platform in promoting their future work with the challenge being a fast and effective way of adding to their credits, creating a show reel for their actors, crew and the production team.

The participants have succeeded in achieving international recognition from their association with this prestigious film festival and offers the opportunity of networking with some the most talented international filmmakers in the most glamorous resort of Puerto Banus in Marbella, enjoying a long weekend of films, fun, parties and much more.
