Since it was started, Second City shorts has been about creating a space for people to have fun while making and sharing some funny stuff. So in that spirit they are announcing a new development for The Second City Shorts!
Rather than taking a suggestion from the audience and having you base your film off that, The Second City is opening it up to you to make whatever you want. Each month they want to see your best and funniest short, regardless of theme or topic. No suggestion required. All the other rules regarding the competition (two minutes or less, five in competition, one winner) will stay the same. But now they want to see what you can really do.
This month’s event:

Chicago, IL 60614
This month, there is no suggestion.
