Filmscape Chicago is here and the cinema and television production expo is all virtual and all free for you to enjoy this week. The main event is this weekend, August 29th and 30th, but Filmscape will have a number of unique events and roundtables leading up to the weekend, starting this afternoon. Let’s take a look . . .
Filmscape Chicago is a cinema and television production expo that focuses on community building, providing two days of completely free education for technicians, film students, and local filmmakers. Industry vendors will exhibit their newest technologies, and industry technicians and artists will share their expertise with the audience through classes and seminars. Founded by veteran technicians and educators working in and around the Chicagoland area with a passion for the community, Filmscape Chicago is more than a trade show.
