The new Hotel Lincoln is a window to the most dynamic part of Chicago's North Side, Lincoln Park.
Like the neighborhood, the hotel is historic yet fresh, fun though eccentric and active but relaxed. It's where the energy of urban life meets 1,200 green acres and Lake Michigan.
2013 Chicago 48 Hour Film Project - Best-Of Screening & Awards...

The 48 Hour Film Project Best-Of is an annual event that showcases and honors the best short films made over the Chicago 48HFP Film Weekend (August 9th - 11th).
The 48HFP 'Film Weekend' is a wild and sleepless weekend in which filmmaking teams throughout the Chicago area make a movie — write, shoot, edit and score it — in just 48 hours.
On Friday night (August 9th), teams received a character (Mike or Michelle Madigan, a Chemist), a prop (remote control), a line of dialogue ('Why didn't I think of that?') and a genre (varied), all to include in their movie. 48 hours later, all films had to be complete in order to remain eligible. Premier Screenings were held August 14th & 15th at the Music Box Theatre.
Every film screening at the Best-Of event was hand selected by our panel of judges or identified as an audience favorite. Whether you're an award hopeful, a participant or a lover of film, this is an excellent opportunity to watch a collection of award-winning short films and support the Chicago filmmaking community at large!
