This is a community for people and film in Chicago; Working professionals, afficiandos, students, and amateurs alike. This community should serve as both a resource and a place to discuss the latest and greatest. It's all so very Web 2.0.

Filmmakers:
If you're looking for advice, resources, information, contacts, co-workers, or assistance, technical or otherwise, then by all means post. If you've got more than enough of the above, then by all means post. If you've discovered a great location, found a deal, are looking for clients, have equipment to sell, or are looking to crew up for a production, then let us know about it. If you're looking for collaborators, underlings, or unsuspecting slaves then let us know about it. If you've got a script that needs polish, a reel to highlight, or an upcoming screening, then let us know about it.

Fans:
Information about screenings, film festivals, theatres, movie reviews, and other great tidbits is welcome here. If you're looking for someone to hold your hand in a dark auditorium, argue about the ways in which Stanley Kubrick is the greatest filmmaker of all time, or to buy your extra tickets, then let us know about it.

Students:
There are a ridiculous amount of schools in Chicago. Share your observations about higher eduction, teachers, classes, or events. If you attend a school that has function others might be interested in, post!
