Filmscape Chicago Brings Together the Film and TV Community [SCREEN Photo Booth Exclusive]

The mantra for this year’s Filmscape Chicago was “New Dates, New Venue, Same Mission,” and the conference was a must-attend for anyone in the Midwest production community this past weekend, June 25th and 26th. The festivities were hosted at CineCity Studios Chicago, 2429 West 14th Street, a production facility minutes away from Cinespace Film Studios.

Entering its fourth year, Filmscape Chicago is the Midwest’s largest education-focused film and television tradeshow. This year represented yet another showcase of the best of the best of lighting, camera, audio, and grip manufacturers, along with Chicago-area production resources, for two days of completely free classes, networking, and technology.
