Expect to see the scurry of filmmakers' feet around Columbus this weekend. Friday kicks off the local 48 Hour Film Project, an international moviemaking challenge making its second annual appearance here. That night, filmmaking teams will be given a genre, a prop and a line of dialogue from which to craft a completed short film in two days or less.

Expect to see the scurry of filmmakers' feet around Columbus this weekend. Friday kicks off the local 48 Hour Film Project, an international moviemaking challenge making its second annual appearance here. That night, filmmaking teams will be given a genre, a prop and a line of dialogue from which to craft a completed short film in two days or less.

All entries will be screened and judged Wednesday and Thursday at the Gateway, with the winning film going on to compete against others around the world. Last year, locals John Jackson and Tim Baldwin's Aidan 5 placed third internationally; the project inspired a web series that launches this week at aidan5.com.
