The Chicago Onscreen Local Film Showcase gives local filmmakers the opportunity to share their work with a citywide audience through free outdoor public screenings in local parks. Previous showcase films have included Chicago-premieres and world-premieres as well as festival-circuit favorites with national and international pedigrees at festivals like SXSW, the Chicago International Film Festival, the Rome International Film Festival, the Berlin Film Festival and dozens more.
Chicago Onscreen has screened more than 60 local films in 25 neighborhood parks across the city, giving Chicagoans a chance to see themselves, their neighborhoods and our city on the big screen.
The Chicago Onscreen Local Film Showcase & Festival will return in 2018, from August 26-September 1. Official Selections and screening schedule will be announced soon.
