Chicago Onscreen 2018

Chicago Onscreen 2018

7 Days. 9 Parks. 26 Screenings. 
    

We’re celebrating our fifth year of bringing local films to neighborhood parks with our most ambitious slate of screenings ever. Join us, August 26 – September 1, as Chicago Onscreen takes over the city. Our fifteen 2018 Official Selections will travel around the city for neighborhood park screenings, then come back together at the end of the week, joining films and episodes curated by Chicago film institutions like Black Cinema House, the Chicago Feminist Film Fest, the DePaul Experimental Film Showcase, Free Spirit Media, the Gene Siskel Film Center and OpenTV for our first ever three-day, multiscreen festival celebration of local films and filmmakers at Ping Tom Memorial Park.
