New Zealand's largest film competition the 'V' Energy 48HOURS: Furious Filmmaking will be highly visible on cinema screens and television screens this year.

NZONAIR have funded a television series that will showcase the best shorts from filmmakers around the country culminating in an awards special. The series will screen on C4, the official broadcasters of the competition.

Registrations for this years competition have just eclipsed last years record number of entries.

Now in its 7th year, the annual competition attracts everyone from skilled professionals to school kids with everyone assembling a squad of gung-ho movie desperadoes to help them achieve a minor miracle; the completion of an entire short film in just one weekend.

Prizes this year include large cash grants from the New Zealand Film Commission and Wingnut Films, a brand new AG-HPX300 series High Definition Professional Camera from Panasonic, study prizes from Unitec, Media Design School, scorching hot 'Red' rental from Rocket Rentals, post-production services from Images & Sound and Park Road Post and much more.

A warm up to the big event is the annual 'V' Energy 48SECONDS contest in which anyone can re-create a famous movie scene (in 48 seconds or less) using V Energy Drink cans or bottles. The Winner will walk away with a years supply of 'V', $1000 cash, 4 iPod Shuffles, a 37" Toshiba LCD TV and the best are screened on C4.
