We could probably pack four naps, seven pizzas, a Law & Order marathon, teeth-brushing and a stroll in the park into a 48-hour period, and that would be pushing it. But the 50-plus film enthusiasts who have registered to take part in the 48 Hour Film Project in St. Louis are betting on the fact that they can do so much more. After being assigned a film genre, these ambitious individuals must find actors and locations, write and shoot the film, and edit it, all in just 48 hours. The results of their sleepless, frenzied efforts will be screened, for the very first time, at 7 and 9 p.m. Tuesday through Thursday (June 3 through 5) at the Tivoli Theatre (6350 Delmar Boulevard, University City; 314-727-7271). Admission costs $10, and you can learn more by checking out www.48hourfilm.com/en/stlouis. And, note: If you miss these screenings, there's a best-of screening ($10) at 7:30 p.m. on Wednesday, June 11, which also takes place at the Tivoli.
