Interview with Hugo Lima and Alessandro Conceição.
Participants in the 72HORAS Film Festival 2016.
The 72HORAS Film Festival is an audiovisual project based in Rio de Janeiro. It aims to encourage new talent and democratize cinematic access within the city, linking creatives of all demographics with production and exhibition opportunities via the creative challenge to produce a short film within 72 hours.
The rules are simple: all scriptwriting, filming and editing must be completed during the 72 hour festival deadline. All films are exhibited but, those entered with even a seconds delay do not compete for festival prizes.
Over 3 days of filming, the festival creates an electric environment with excited crews on every corner of the city. The resulting films provide a fascinating annual snapshot of Rio de Janeiro, its inhabitants and their concerns and joys expressed through film.
Within four years, 72HORAS has instigated the production of 300 short films produced by 6,000 young filmmakers and delivered free workshop, production and screening programs to over 15,000 people.
