Chicagoland Shorts Vol. 3 brings together the best of the city’s so-called “niche” cinema – experimental genres and works by queer filmmakers, women, and people of color, combining them into one expansive, rich evening of film.
The short films collected in Chicagoland Shorts Vol. 3 span many disciplines: experimental animation, observational doc, music videos. The filmmakers run the gamut from internationally renowned auteurs, young voices, an Emmy-winner, a Fulbright Fellow, and a Wexner resident. Chicagoland Shorts highlights the diversity of Chicago’s film community, helping general audiences experience cinematic versions of Chicago they may have never thought to access.
