Are you a filmmaker, cinematographer, producer, editor, key grip, gaffer, or content creator or any genre or community? If so, your weekend plans are set. Filmscape is excited to announce a hybrid model of online and in-person events for their 2021 show taking place this weekend on the Cinespace Lot August 28 and 29.
A nonprofit based in Chicago, Filmscape was founded with the goal of providing continuing free education for the film and television community in Chicago and beyond. Now in our third year, we are proud to continue our tradition of hosting a live multi-day event that combines the networking opportunities found at traditional trade shows with classes and technical training that spans the entire industry.
Chock Full of Educational Opportunities, In-Person and Online Events
Filmscape will be hosting three educational tracks of in-person and online classes, geared towards the needs and interests of those involved in Grip & Electric, Production & Post, and Camera departments. This year, they are also excited to expand class offerings to include a broader range of topics beyond just the technical aspects of filmmaking. They are looking forward to the opportunity to present streaming classes from special industry guests from around the world that will continue to make Filmscape safe and accessible to all.
Filmscape’s exhibit floor will filled with camera, lens and lighting manufacturers from across the film and television industry and we are thrilled in bringing back hands-on demonstrations and the in-person interaction that allow for increased networking and strong community engagement.
New Executive Director for Filmscape
Under the direction of our new Executive Director, Gary Adcock, Filmscape is looking at 2021 as an opportunity to increase our educational offerings as we foster greater awareness for Chicago’s production community.
“The past year has taught us many things, but in particular it has shown the true value of community – at any size, from anywhere,” the team at Filmscape said in a statement. “We are eager for the chance to take this show to a national level, available to anyone with an internet connection, and not only those who can make the trip to Chicago.”
