Grayline NY Sightseeing Bus

What can YOU do in just 48 hours?

See another side of NYC with Gray Line and Ride of Fame! Winter Film Awards and Gray Line continue our partnership in our upcoming 48-Hour Film Challenge!  Winning teams can see NYC from up high on a Double-Decker Bus Tour, or check out some of the attractions you’ve somehow missed with the Freestyle Tour or cruise around the city on the Harbor Tour!


About the Challenge

WINTER FILM AWARDS challenges the local NYC community to create a 4-7 minute short film in a specified genre, tagline and prop in just a single gonzo weekend! Thirty teams of the most creative people in the tri-state area have just 48 sleepless hours to decide what they are going to do, write a screenplay, assemble props, costumes and actors, rehearse, shoot, score and edit their film. Students, amateurs, and seasoned industry veterans alike learn the importance of caffeine, team work and time management in successful filmmaking.
