Organizers for Des Moines' 48 Hour Film Project saw such a rapid response to early-bird registration for the competition that they have expanded the number of team spots to 52.

The film project, held in the last weekend of July, challenges filmmakers to producing a short film in only 48 hours based on a theme or idea given by the competition. The winner of the Best of City category has a chance to win a $5,000 development deal with truTV. For more information,
