About the Albuquerque 48 Hour Film Project 2017

The 48-hour film project put together by some of our own AWD family! The 48-Hour Film Project is a local competition in which participants literally have just two days to write, produce, direct, and edit a short film.  The film was put together by Mandy Wang and Jennifer Hower, with the help of volunteers Jim Matthews, Arline and Billye Gregoire, and staff members Julie Buckland and Dee Derden.  The real treat? It stars some of our adorable, adoptable shelter animals.
