Chicagoland Shorts Vol. 1

Chicagoland Shorts Vol. 1 brings together the best of the so-called niche cinemas – queer, Asian American, black, experimental, etc. – culled from local film festivals, micro-cinemas, and film schools. This eclectic collection boasts award-winning films including a finalist for the 2014 Student Academy Award and the recipient of a Human Rights Award from Nielsen Reviews. Collectively, the films featured in Chicagoland Shorts Vol. 1 have screened nationally and internationally at museums, galleries, and over 100 competitive film festivals.
