Filmmakers: Help Steer this CAR

Chicago Artists Resource is adding film as a discipline to its site. CAR's mission is to build a creative marketplace for Chicago artists by providing access to jobs, opportunities and professional development. We figure you want to make a living at your craft, and you need money and exposure to do so. We've started a survey to find out what that means specifically for filmmakers.

At the end of the survey is an option to submit a film short and essay. Selected works get posted to CAR and $100. (We might as well practice what we preach.)

Weigh in, submit your content. We'd love to have the people practicing film and video tell us what they need to help them focus on their work.



The Chicago Film and Media Summit is presented by the Department of Cultural Affairs and Special Events and co-organized by 2DS Productions, Beverly Ridge Pictures, Chicago Acting in Film Meet-up Group, Chicago Film Office, Chicago International Film Festival, CIMMfest, Cinespace Film Studios Chicago, Filmworkers, Fletcher Chicago, IFP Chicago, Illinois Film Office, Kartemquin Films, Midwest Independent Film Festival and Ocean Pictures.
