Celebrating 5 Years of Local Films in Local Parks
Since 2014, this Local Film Showcase has featured films made right here in Chicago in parks across the city. We're proud to support filmmakers working and creating in our city, and to enrich the Movies in the Parks program with hometown movies featuring, speaking to and relevant for Chicago.
This year's fifteen Official Selections explore the unseen depths, undiscovered backstories and inner workings of the Chicago we see around us. Reaching beyond first impressions to explore hidden compartments and secret passageways, histories and legends, uncertainties and unpleasantness – these films show us the unseen world behind the seen.
