What did you do with 48 hours earlier this summer?

If you competed in the Rhode Island Film Collaborative's time-pressured, high-yield 48 Hour Film Project, you squeezed every bit of visual creativity out of those hours. At the beginning of a weekend in July, you got a character, a prop, a line of dialogue, and a genre. By the end of the weekend you came up with a film.

Now, the RIFC has announced the winners of this year's competition. And they are:
