Chicago 48 Hour Film Project

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).

 Cairo Time on Aruba Time! Ruba Nadda and Patricia Clarkson on red carpet at Aruba IFF. The night before their premier, we met at the Aruba Golf Resort at The Burning Plain after party and over all-you-can-Mumms, I spoke with them both about their experience filming entirely on location in Cairo. In the presence of flipping and twirling Aruba Carnivalesque stage dancers- a truly Lynchian moment- they told me how marvelous and exciting their experience in Cairo was. From the looks of their l...

Cairo Time: Red Carpet   Cairo Time's director Ruba Nadda, producer Daniel Iron and lead actress Patricia Clarkson arrived in Aruba in the midst of the first AIFF to the site of masked Aruban dancers and the bottoms up of Moet Champagne glasses. Not a bad night entrance to this tropical island and no doubt a stark contrast to the location where there film is entirely set, in Cairo Egypt. When I asked Patricia what it was like to film in Cairo, she smiled and shook her ...

Tribeca Travelogue: Postcards from Manila and Cairo

I can't wait until April 20th to tell you about LOLA and CAIRO TIME, the two visually stunning films (non-embargoed this time!) I saw back-to-back on this lazy pre-festival screening Saturday. I feel like somebody just gave me frequent flier miles.    Quite a juxtaposition between the two trips. LOLA, Brilliante Mendoza‘s new film,is brilliant and yet depressing ("life with the sad parts left in for two elderly women some place around the globe where it rains a lot"...
