June 24, 2011 | By | Add a Comment

Chicago filmmakers will have a chance to show off their quick editing chops when the 48 Hour Film Project comes to the city on July 29. The contestants will have to make a film in just 48 hours, after which they will compete against other local filmmakers to see who can make the best short film in two days. The contest moves beyond the city as the winning movie goes on to compete with other short films worldwide.

Early bird registration is $140. Teams must register on or before Wednesday, July 6 to get the early bird rate. Registration is $160 from July 7 to July 19, and $175 from July 20 onward.

Teams will be accepted on a first come, first served basis (space is limited). Once the initial registration

is complete, teams will be put on a waiting list in case any registered teams drop out of the competition.

On June 28 the project will host an informal “Meet n’ Greet” event:

When: 6:30 – 10:00 p.m. on June 28

Where: Double Door, 1572 N. Milwaukee Ave, Chicago, IL 60622

This will be an informal mixer for filmmakers, team leaders, industry professionals and people looking to get involved. It’s a great opportunity to exchange info and, of course, do a little mid-week partying. This event is open to the public and anyone interested is welcome to attend. Extras: Chicago’s Premier Punk Rock Choir – The Blue Ribbon Glee Club – will be performing mid way through the night. So make sure you stick around! For more details about the event, visit:
