Record Turnout for Filmscape Chicago [Photo Gallery]

A record-breaking crowd of film, television and advertising professionals descended upon CineCity Studios for Filmscape Chicago this past weekend. More than 1,000 attendees – a 40% increase from last year’s turnout – packed the house for two days of education, community building, and more. And the Filmscape team assembled a superb cohort of industry luminaries to lead the way.

Among the many esteemed panelists were Chicago Fire star Joe Minoso, who talked about balancing paid work with passion projects. He was joined by Tessa Films co-founder Lisa Masseur, Filmmaker and Dolly Grip Tim Troy, and former Chicago PD Co-Producer Daniele Bernstein.
