Here are some of the latest projects that I am working on…
Collected Voices centers around original ethnographic works that explore the intersection of race, age, class, gender, and sexuality within Chicago society. Explored through short and feature length films from Chicago based artists, these stories capture the voices of individuals and communities.
Started in 2015 with a grant from Chicago Artists Month, Collected Voices is Chicago’s first and only Ethnographic film fest, blending together fiction and documentary media from diverse Chicago filmmakers in academia and art.
This year we received more great films from Chicago and around the world, about real life everyday experiences. Our festival grew in our second year from 4 venues to 10! We showed more than 40 never before screened films across Chicago, Il.
This year we are at it again with over 20 films in 4 different locations! We’re so excited to bring you our awesome selection. Be sure to check us out on FB and Twitter @CollectedVoices. Visit our website at collectedvoicesfilmfest.com.
We secured great community centers, clubs, galleries, and theaters though-out the city for screenings and discussion. Be sure to come out to a screening. See the full lineup below.
