Genre Requirement 48 Hour Film Politics & Comedy Project

At the kickoff event each team draws two genres.

By random drawing, teams will receive two genres--one political thriller, one comedy--and may choose which one to pursue. Your film must be true to one of the genres you have selected—and no trading with other teams!

Please Note: There are no wild card genres for this project.
