48 Hour Film Project organizers keep participants honest by giving them a set of elements that they all must incorporate into their films, assuring they have no time for advance preparation. 45 filmmaking teams each learned of the elements, and then had two days in July to write, shoot and edit their entries in the fifth Chicago iteration of the national 48 HFP.
The results are on display tonight at 7:30 PM and Sunday at 5:30 PM at the Portage Theater, 4050 N. Milwaukee. There are different programs each night — the first set of films screened Thursday.
After Sunday's screening there's a wrap party at Capitol Club, 4244 N. Milwaukee.
