At ten years it's the most venerable of the proliferating speed filmmaking contests, and for the seventh year, the 48-Hour Film Project sets up shop in Chicago this weekend for two days of breakneck production and two nights of irreverent screenings with the creative teams.

Above, Everything Tastes Better, directed by MItch Apley of Resolution Digital Studios, was last year's Chicago winner.

Teams can register for $175 while supplies last, then show up Friday 7/29 at 6 PM at the new production facility Firehouse Studios, 1545 W. Rosemont Ave. to receive the last-minute instructions that ensure competition entries are conceived and produced entirely between then and the delivery deadline, Sunday 7/31 at 7:30 PM.

Entries screen in four groups, Tuesday and Wednesday, 8/2 and 8/3 at 7 and 9:30 PM at Logan Theater, 2646 N. Milwaukee Ave.

Chicago's top film will compete against winners from nearly 100 cities around the world for a shot at playing in next year's Cannes Short Film Corner.
