Celebrating the new wave of independent cinema in Chicago, Chicagoland Shorts Vol. 3 champions work by underrepresented filmmakers and combines experimental genres into one seamless anthology. Produced by Full Spectrum Features NFP, Chicagoland Shorts Vol. 3 brings together the best of the city’s so-called “niche” cinemas – experimental genres and works by queer filmmakers, women, and people of color. The program joins those “niches” into one expansive, rich evening of film – helping general audiences experience cinematic versions of Chicago they may have never thought to access.
Vol. 3 is co-curated by Beckie Stocchetti of the Chicago Film Office, Raul Benitez of Comfort Station and the Nightingale Cinema, and award-winning filmmaker Jim Vendiola.
