2020 Filter Photo Festival

Wednesday, Sep 9 – 13, 2020

1821 W Hubbard, Ste. 207, Chicago, IL 60622

Filter Photo is pleased to announce the 12th Annual Filter Photo Festival, a multi-day celebration of photography. Due to COVID-19, this year's Festival will take place primarily online—with a robust line-up of virtual programming, alongside hybrid physical and online exhibitions. Photography curators, collectors, and critics from across the country will conduct nearly 250 virtual portfolio reviews with aspiring artists and photographers. The Festival will also host a variety of virtual photography workshops exploring topics like creative production, professional practices, and career development. Additionally, the Festival will feature a series of daily online artist talks, including photographer Liz Deschenes as the featured evening speaker. Supplemental virtual programming includes Roaming Reviews and the Festival Zoom Lounge, which will both serve as opportunities for Festival-goers to casually share work and connect with peers. Finally, there will be a special reception for two juried exhibitions featuring nearly 60 artists at Filter Space gallery. 

Portfolio reviews and workshops are paid events that require advanced registration. All other virtual programming is free and open to the public. See the full schedule of events here: https://www.filterphoto.org/2020-festival-calendar
