The weekend? August 23 - 25, 2019
The challenge? To make a film in only 48 hours!
Filmmakers from all over the Chicago, IL area will compete to see who can make the best short film in only 48 hours. The winning film will go up against films from around the world at Filmapalooza 2020 for a chance at the grand prize and an opportunity to screen at the Cannes Film Festival 2020 Short Film Corner.
