Smart Bets: Best of the 48 Hour Film Project

There was light, and sound, and action, and one quick weekend to complete masterful short films. Though the 48 Hour Film Project has come and gone for yet another year, the fruits of its labors remain. More to the point, the end results of the labors of 24 teams who began the endeavor, 19 who submitted their films and 17 who actually got them in on time (two teams were disqualified for being a mere two minutes late). Audiences viewed and picked winners at screenings in late June, but the best has been saved for last. Rather, the Best of (aka 10 of) this year’s 48 Hour Film Festival Project winners. The screening takes place on Thursday, July 11 at Asheville Pizza & Brewing on Merrimon Avenue. 7 p.m., $10.
