SATO48 is the popular way to describe Springfield And The Ozarks 48-Hour Film Challenge, where Filmmaking teams make an original 5-minute movie from start to finish in one weekend/ 48 hours! 


The short films then have their premiere screening during the SATO48 Film Festival, are judged locally and internationally,  

with awards and prizes presented at the red-carpet SATO48 Recognition & Awards Ceremony. 


Some films air on broadcast television’s SATO48 The TV Show. 


The event is open to all.
