CHICAGOLAND SHORTS is Full Spectrum Features' annual touring short film series that highlights the incredible diversity of The Windy City and its surrounding communities. The series celebrates the vastness of the Chicagoland experience and provides an outlet for those cinematic voices that often go unheard within the independent film community.

This collection is Full Spectrum Features' flagship program and embodies our mission to provide a platform for the intersecting work of people of color, women, and LGBTQ filmmakers, while showcasing genre- and boundary-pushing short films. Along with highlighting underrepresented voices, the program also combines genres often considered "niche" – experimental, observational doc, dance, found footage, silent – bringing these diverse voices and forms together into an exciting and accessible program.

CHICAGOLAND SHORTS has screened locally and nationally at venues such as the Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago, Anthology Film Archives, and Northwest Film Forum. The program is also available on DVD and streaming on Amazon.com.
