Cape Town - What does it take to film and edit a movie in 48 hours?

Once a year 120 cities all across the world compete in a 48 Hour Film Project where each city selects one movie to represent it at the Annual Filmpalooza in the US. Cape Town chose Five Minutes Till Noon, a western about a serial killer roaming on a South African railway station.

"We are so proud that we get to represent Cape Town in the USA next year and get to be part of putting South African filmmaking on the map," says De Vries.
