48 Film Fest

Required Elements:

Did you know judges base part of their scores on a film’s adherence to assignment? This refers to the genre and required elements.

Required Line

The required line of dialogue must be heard or seen. O can also be written. It may be in a foreign language; however if it is not clear that this is the required line, it should be translated. 

Required Location

The required location indicates a site that should be featured in your film -- long enough to be recognized, but not a required location for the entire film.

Required Prop

The required prop must be seen, and it should be used in your film in some way. (Example: toothbrush, comb, canning jar)
