Chicago Filmmakers invites the public to the opening of its new home, a 1928 Chicago Historic Landmark firehouse purchased from the city of Chicago in 2016. After extensive renovations, Chicago Filmmakers has restored the retired firehouse and developed it into a new space that will be a vital cultural addition to the Edgewater community.

The event will take place Saturday, April 28, 11am - 2pm at Chicago Filmmakers, 5720 N. Ridge Ave. (Enter from Hollywood Ave.)

The event on Saturday, April 28th will begin with a Ribbon Cutting Ceremony at 11am with 48th Ward Alderman Harry Osterman; Christine Dudley, Director of the Illinois Film Office; Rich Moskal, Director of the Chicago Film Office; Dr. Eric Freedman, Dean of the School of Media Arts at Columbia College Chicago; actor Chris "Mouch" Stolte, one of the stars of NBC's Chicago Fire; and other film industry and community leaders.

An Open House will immediately follow the ribbon cutting, with Chicago Filmmakers' staff, board members, and instructors on hand to greet visitors and share information about Chicago Filmmakers' programs. Refreshments will be provided courtesy of Honest Foods Catering.

Founded in 1973, Chicago Filmmakers is one of the country's oldest and most programmatically diverse not-for-profit media arts organizations. Chicago Filmmakers nurtures the development of aspiring filmmakers of all ages by offering college level classes and workshops for adults, as well as summer camps and weekend classes for youth; empowers local artists to create new work through production funding, equipment access, fiscal sponsorship, and other services and resources for filmmakers; and encourages the professional development of media artists through seminars, panel discussions, lectures, learning circles, networking events and other opportunities for artistic exchange and collaboration. Chicago Filmmakers develops diverse audiences through its year-round film and video exhibition programs and its two annual film festivals, Reeling: The Chicago LGBTQ+ International Film Festival and The Onion City Experimental Film + Video Festival.

This is a free event open to all.
