The 48 Hour Film Project began in 2001 with the first competition in Washington, D.C., and was founded by the current Executive Producers, Mark Ruppert and Liz Langston. It has grown exponentially from there, with Chicago joining the mix in 2005. The competition includes cities from all over the United States and the world, culminating in “Filmapalooza,” where winners from each city will compete against each other. Last year’s Chicago 48HFP winner, “Hammersmith: Hurdle of Dreams” by Kalopsia Films, was awarded a spot at the Short Film Corner at the 2018 Cannes International Film Festival at this year’s Paris Filmapalooza.


In the following Podtalk with Patrick McDonald of HollywoodChicago.com, Producer Jerry Vasilatos of the Chicago 48 Hour Film Project talks about the upcoming screenings, audience participation and stories about the finish line of 48HFP.


The 2018 Chicago “48 Hour Film Project” presents Premiere Screenings on July 29th and 30th, with “Best of” Screenings and Awards Ceremony on Thursday, August 3rd. All screenings will take place at the Music Box Theatre, 3733 North Southport, Chicago. For more information about the overall 48HFP, including competition rules, click here.

In all those permutations, producer Stephanie Buxbaum has experienced it all, and has the career and stories to prove it.

  • Deadbeat2

    CHICAGO – Not many web series start out as music videos, but the new online (YouTube) drama “Deadbeat 2” was just that.
