Chicago has a vibrant indie filmmaking scene. If you're part of it, we invite you to tap into the Filmmakers in Action network to find likeminded filmmakers and screenwriters developing their craft and building their portfolio/reels.

Whether you want to produce your own short (or feature) film or get experience on someone else's, you'll find plenty of opportunities in this MeetUp group.


MONTHLY MEETUPS
Pencil in the 2nd Tuesday of each month and make a point to join us for our monthly presentations and networking event. You'll have a chance to hear from an experience speaker on an advanced topic, such as webisodes, documentaries and shooting a feature film for under $15,000.

But you'll also be able to network with other filmmakers and screenwriters like you.

 

HANDS-ON FILM PROJECTS - JOIN THE CREW DATABASE!!!
We will have several film projects and opportunities for members.

Do you want to be part of a film crew or cast? Make sure to add your information to our Film Crew Database (http://www.meetup.com/ChicagoFilmmake......).

 

Are you looking for volunteers for your film project? Check out our volunteers in our Film Crew Database (http://www.meetup.com/ChicagoFilmmake......) and also get placement in our Current Film Projects page.


INTENSIVE WORKSHOPS

Our 1-day screenwriting bootcamp last fall was such a hit that we're bringing it back this year. Once again, we'll have screenwriting professionals and teachers take you through the elements of an effective and "marketable" screenplay.

But we're also adding new workshops to provide an intensive introduction for beginners and novices. Stay tuned for more information.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
