Richmond’s film community will be running all over the city this weekend. That’s because the clock is ticking while area moviemakers attempt to get their films completed for the 48 Hour Film Project. The competition, in which filmmakers have that much time to write, shoot and edit a short film, gives winning filmmakers a chance to screen their resulting work at the Cannes Film Festival — which happened with 2007’s winner, Lucas Krost. At the kickoff, each team will receive two critical pieces of information — a genre and the required elements (character, prop and line of dialogue) — that must be used. The competing films will be screened at the Byrd Theatre on July 30 and 31. The 48 Hour Film Project’s kickoff is scheduled for the Camel on Friday, July 22, at 6 p.m. 48hourfilm.com/richmond.
