Chicago 48 Hour Film Project

Festival presentation: 

The 48 Hour
Film Project is a wild and sleepless weekend in which you and a team
make a movie—write, shoot, edit and score it—in just 48 hours.

On Friday
night you get a character, a prop, a line of dialogue and a genre, all
to include in your movie. 48 hours later, the movie must be complete.
Then it will show at a local theater, usually in the next week.

In 2010
nearly 40,000 filmmakers made 3,000 films in in 80 cities on five
continents.  This year marks the 10th anniversary of the 48 Hour Film
Project, marking an exciting year for us and with close to 100
participating cities, it's
our biggest year yet!  As you may or may not know, the top films every
year go to the Cannes Film Festival to be featured as part of the Short
Film Corner.  Sadly, Chicago has never sent a representative to this
international stage.  This year, we'd like to change that - so bring
your game face to Chicago's 2011 Film Weekend (July 29th - 31st).
