The Passage dir. MISSING FRAMEThe Passage dir. MISSING FRAME
48 Hour Film Project Wrocław

The first edition of the 48 Hour Film Project Wrocław took place in April 2015. In only 48 hours, the film crews taking part in the competition had to write a screenplay, which was then used as the basis for shooting and editing a short, 4-7 minute, film. Each production had to contain the following elements: pompoms; a character named Tomek or Joanna Karat, who was an engineer; the line “You’re as constant as the traffic lights”; and the city of Wrocław. Each crew made its film according to the conventions of a randomly selected genre. The resulting short films were judged by a jury made up of Roman Gutek, Wiesław Saniewski, Milenia Fiedler and Tomasz Augustynek. The main prize went to the Missing Frame crew for their film Przejście. The winning film will take part in the international finals at Filmapalooza alongside nearly 130 other winners from different cities that took part in the 48 Hour Film Project competition, including Katowice and Warsaw. One of the prizes will be a screening as part of the Short Film Corner program at the festival in Cannes.

The project was implemented by the Foundation for Film Space as part of the film program during Wrocław’s year as European Capital of Culture in 2016.
