South Side Projections

Between 2011 and 2023, South Side Projections presented films at locations across Chicago’s south side to foster conversation about complex social and political issues. At many screenings, we enlisted scholars, activists, and filmmakers to lead discussions, while other screenings offered opportunities to present seldom-seen films of historical and artistic value to the communities of Chicago’s south side. In all cases we were a springboard to a deeper understanding of our communities and the broader world. We have ceased operation, but this site will remain as an archive of the conversations that occurred at our events.
