The 48 Hour Film Project is a contest in which teams of filmmakers are assigned a genre, a character, a prop, and a line of dialogue, and then have 48 hours to create an 8 minute short film containing those elements. This year's 14th annual Premiere Screenings will showcase the work of filmmakers from all over the city, and audiences will also get in on the fun voting to select the Audience Choice Award, which will then screen with local celebrity judge’s choices at the Best Of Chicago Screening on Thursday, August 2nd. The Best Film wins $1000.
