The Red Sea Film Festival (RSFF) has launched the 48Hr Film Challenge, inviting young, aspiring Saudi and resident filmmakers to create a short film in just two days. The competition is a collaboration among French Cultural Center, the French Consulate in Jeddah, the French Embassy and the Red Sea International Film Festival.
The organizers invite applications from teams of creative people aged 18–25 comprising up to five participants and led by a Saudi director or scriptwriter.
The challenge will conclude with the screening of the films in August. Two teams will be awarded 48Hr Film Challenge trophies. Winning team leaders will then enjoy a filmmaking residency in France in 2024.
