Celebrating 15 Years of Serving Independent Films at Johnsonese Brokerage

If you’ve been a part of an independent film anywhere near Chicago or throughout the Midwest, there’s a pretty good chance Chris Johnson and the fine folks at Johnsonese Brokerage were a part of it. The people at Johnsonese Brokerage excel at navigating the complicated world of insurance to find the right insurance coverage for their roster of film clients. This past holiday season, Chris and his team toasted to 15 years of serving the creative production community.

To celebrate the joyous occasion, Chris and his team welcomed clients, insurance partners and friends for a holiday gathering. Despite horrendous traffic jams and barricaded streets caused by an unexpected motorcade delivering President Biden to a downtown fundraiser, roughly 60 guests made it through to party the night away at IFA (Independent Filmmakers Alliance) Chicago’s office at Cinespace.

For most of the guests, this was their first visit to Cinespace, a regular work location for Johnsonese staff. The evening was characterized by great conversations, meeting new people and connecting with old friends as well as a continuous screening of client shorts and previews in the IFA Chicago screening room. The featured films were provided by Full Spectrum Features, Open TV and producer John Bosher.

Also direct from the screening room stage, Johnsonese founder Chris Johnson provided a brief preview of the agency’s new “Entrepreneur Special” offering combining insurance for clients’ business and personal needs.

Let’s take a look at some photos from the festivities…
