For CC28, we are thrilled to welcome the traveling Chicagoland Shorts program. 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.
The short films collected in Chicagoland Shorts Vol. 3 have screened in over 30 countries and 65 cities throughout the world. The work spans many disciplines, including experimental animation, observational doc, and music videos. The filmmakers run the gamut from internationally renowned auteurs to young voices, and include an Emmy-winner, a Fulbright Fellow, and a Wexner resident.
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.
