1821 W. Hubbard St., Suite 207, Chicago, IL 60622

Filter Photo is pleased to present the 15th Annual Filter Photo Festival. This four-day event celebrates the vibrant art community in Chicago through photography-inspired programming. Photography curators, collectors, and critics from across the country will conduct portfolio reviews with aspiring artists and photographers. There will also be a variety of photography workshops exploring topics like creative production, professional practices, and career development. Additionally, the Festival will feature a series of daily artist talks, including Poulomi Basu as the featured evening speaker. Festival-goers will also have the opportunity to casually share work during Roaming Reviews and connect with peers and our sponsors in the Festival Lounge. Finally, there will be a special reception at Filter Space for two exhibitions—Unstable Entity, a solo exhibition of work by Rebecca Drolen, and we like small things v.6, our annual small works exhibition. Portfolio reviews and workshops are paid events that require advanced registration. All other programming is free and open to the public.

The 2023 Festival will be held September 27th - 30th at the Columbia College Chicago Student Center, centrally located in downtown Chicago in proximity to museums, galleries, and other cultural institutions. View the full line-up of programming here: https://www.filterphoto.org/festival-calendar
