Full Spectrum Features premieres their annual collection of Chicago-made short movies, Chicagoland Shorts Vol. 5, in the Edlis Neeson Theater. The screening is followed by a reception with the artists in the Commons. This year’s program, curated by Raul Benitez, Emily Eddy and Melika Bass, includes recent works by Jennifer Boles, Jiayi Chen & Cameron Worden, Lonnie Edwards, Meredith Leich, Sebastián Pinzón Silva, Ashley Thompson, and Marisa Tolomeo.

Full Spectrum Features is a Chicago-based organization committed to increasing diversity in the independent film industry by producing, exhibiting, and supporting the work of women, LGBTQ, and minority filmmakers. Full Spectrum Features works to transform the entire media landscape—from the actors on screen, to the crew behind the camera, to the people in the audience.

MCA Screenings feature experimental works of contemporary cinema that expand traditional notions of moviegoing and are organized by Christy LeMaster, Assistant Curator of Public Programs.
