What We Are
A new nonprofit organization presenting film screenings throughout Chicago’s south side. Most screenings will be accompanied by presentations or panel discussions.
To present film screenings and panel discussions to foster conversation on social issues; to alleviate the lack of mainstream film viewing opportunities on the south side of Chicago by presenting films in alternative venues; and to promote the film and video work of filmmakers and students who lack access to Chicago’s traditional art-house and film-school markets.
