Description:

A SHOWCASE OF CHICAGO'S NEW WAVE OF INDEPENDENT CINEMA

Filmmakers typically underrepresented in mainstream media are at the forefront of media-making in Chicago right now.

Inspired by this community's unparalleled diversity and artistic excellence, Full Spectrum Features has curated film work of women, people of color, and the LGBTQ+ community into Chicagoland Shorts, a traveling anthology and tribute to our city that will screen across Cook County and nationally from Seattle to New York.

The filmmakers in Chicagoland Shorts Vol. 4 have screened their films at festivals such as Cannes, Tribeca, Sundance, Berlin, Vienna, Rotterdam, and Chicago International, and have won numerous awards. Their work spans many disciplines, including dance, experimental, and science fiction. The artists in our collection are diverse, prolific, genre-bending, and quintessentially Chicago.

Curated by:
Raul Benitez (Lead Programmer) - Comfort Film
Lori Felker - Filmmaker, Professor
Sarah Rubin - Reeling Film Festival
Anahita Ghazvinizadeh - "They", "Needle"
