The film festival will be organized by N.Tsogtbayar, who resides in the USA, participated in 48HFP before and decided to bring it to Mongolia. Then, he will host the event in Ulaanbaatar with “Glob Art” Center, “Mongol Film Group” LLC and “Jur Ur” Company.

Mongolian filmmakers will join a record 2,500 filmmaking teams worldwide totaling 35,000 people, expected to take part in the competition, relying on inspiration, adrenaline, and gallons of coffee to complete short films of up to seven minutes in only two sleepless days.

Participating teams will be given a genre, a character, a prop, and a line of dialogue that they must work into their piece. They will be responsible for putting together a cast and crew, and getting equipment and anything else needed to make a film/video. Films submitted even one minute late will be disqualified.

Films will be screened for the public on September 16 at the Urgoo Cinema in Ulaanbaatar, where the audience will select Mongolian best film. The winners will then be in the running for top honors at Filmapalooza, the 48 Hour Film Project’s annual awards event honoring the year’s top films, which will take place at the Miami International Film Festival in 2011. Films will also compete to be among 14 films to be screened at the Cannes Film Festival’s Short Film Corner in 2011.

“While the tight deadline may seem like an obstacle, ultimately it places the emphasis on creativity and teamwork, and gooses participants into making their films rather than just talking about them. If you could give us your film or video in our required format, then you could even create your masterpiece on your cell phone camcorder,” said N. Tsogtbayar , Mongolian producer for The 48 Hour Film Project.

“More importantly, it breaks down barriers by allowing anyone in Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia with a free weekend, a video camera, and boundless creative energy to experience the fun, exhilaration, and satisfaction of producing a fully-realized film.”

The 48 Hour Film Project is the oldest and largest timed film competition in the world.  The 48 Hour Film Project’s mission is to advance filmmaking and promote filmmakers. The tight 48-hour deadline puts the focus squarely on the filmmakers, emphasizing creativity and teamwork and “doing” instead of “talking.” The emphasis is also on building communities of local creative people - facilitating making new connections, showcasing skills, and celebrating what creativity and teamwork can accomplish in just one weekend. In 2009, more than 30,000 filmmakers in over 80 cities participated in the festival.
