48 Hour Film Project registration is open

48 Hour Film Project registration is open with new genres, some awesome upcoming events, and the always exciting challenge of making your short film in just 48 hours.

It’s your chance to make a film and see it on the BIG SCREEN!

Get Ready for An Amazing Challenge!

The weekend? September 23 – 25, 2022
The challenge? To make a film in only 48 hours!

Filmmakers from all over the Chicago area will compete to see who can make the best short film in only 48 hours.

Write, shoot, and edit a short film over the weekend and see it premiere on the big screen.

All Welcome!  First-timers to hobbyists, to amateurs, to professionals.

Take your filmmaking to the next level. Wherever you currently are in your filmmaking journey, the 48 Hour Film Project is a valuable next step.

     •. Make your FIRST film… the first of many
     •. Create a film (or another film) for your reel
     •  Practice new techniques — in a low-risk setting
     •. Find new filmmaking partners to work with, beginning on a (very!) short-term basis
     •  Create work to help show off your skills to find that next job

The winning film will go up against films from around the world at Filmapalooza 2023 in Los Angeles for a chance at the grand prize and an opportunity to screen at the Cannes Film Festival 2023 Short Film Corner.

Plus, new this year… the top three teams will be eligible for the soon-to-be-announced 48HFP “Yes We Cannes” challenge in December!
