THE SOLD-OUT WORLD PREMIERE

AT THE MUSEUM OF CONTEMPORARY ART
May 30, 2017

A showcase of Chicago's new wave of independent cinema

There's a new wave happening right now in Chicago, and at the forefront are filmmakers typically underrepresented in mainstream media.

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

The filmmakers in Chicagoland Shorts Vol. 3 have collectively screened their work in over 30 countries and 65 cities throughout the world; we count in the collection an Emmy-winner, a Fulbright Fellow, and a Wexner resident. The artists in our collection are diverse, prolific, genre-bending, and quintessentially Chicago.
