Filmmaker Meetup!

Our next filmmaker meetup is almost here! We at Chicago Filmmakers are anxious to see old friends and meet new ones and we hope you are too!

This event is our favorite way to find your next writer/DP/motivation/producer/agent/friend! Join us on Tuesday, September 24th from 7-9pm to mix and mingle with local filmmakers. Come network and learn about projects that are looking for cast & crew right now. Maybe you have a project of your own? Looking for inspiration? Jump in, we won't bite!

Special Guest Katherine Nero! Producer/Writer/Director of FOR THE CAUSE

Katherine just premiered her first feature-length film, For the Cause, which she also wrote and produced at the Black Harvest Film Festival at Gene Siskel Film Center in August.  Katherine will join us to show clips from the film, talk about what it means to make a successful feature narrative in Chicago and launching a major distribution campaign! 

Katherine Nero

, a native Chicagoan, is a graduate of Northwestern University where she earned a BA in Political Science and an MA in Radio-Television-Film.  She has written, produced and directed numerous short films and freelanced on various film and television productions.  In 2011 she was selected as a finalist for the ABC/Disney Screenwriting Fellowship. Katherine also writes about movies and social engagement at her blog:


For the uninitiated: this bimonthly networking event provides a chance for filmmakers to meet and collaborate on projects. Are you a screenwriter looking for a producer? A director looking for a director of photography? This event is open to anyone who is interested in making independent media: editors, actors, art directors, composers, make-up artists... Bring your resume and business cards, and we’ll handle the rest. Special guest speakers and community businesses will also be featured.

As always, it's totally free for Chicago Filmmaker members, $5 for non-members. To inquire about membership, go to: or call[masked]-1447. We're bringing the drinks back and we'll be full of cool people talking film... don't miss it!

    Hello, I'm working on a Doc about a Lakota Medicine Man. We've completed field production and are raising funds for post. We have built an incredible team but I feel the need to use animation for vision sequences and ceremonies that were too private to record. Any animators should find look for me at the meet tomorrow.

    I am a painter who is midway in production of an educational documentary called, "Making Man...Kind", which explores the values & virtues of kindness such as gratitude, compassion & forgiveness. The idea is that we shouldn't just teach kids to count, but we should teach them WHAT counts. It's our belief that we are all branches of the same tree, & that kindness is the universal language we speak. I really need a young masculine confident male for some voice over...soon. Only a few min script so about an hour of work. Any thoughts and demos appreciated. [masked]
