DCASE Opportunities for Artists and Creative Professionals

DCASE Opportunities
The Independent Film Initiative (IFI)

Chicago Film Office now accepting submissions for 2017/2018 Filmmaker-In-Residence
Applications for the Chicago Film Office Filmmaker-In-Residence (2017-18) are now being accepted. The residency is part of our Independent Film Initiative - a platform to formally support local independent filmmakers and to bring more visibility and support to Chicago's independent filmmaking industry. Preferred applicants should be mid-career professionals with a project in development and/or prepping for production. Residents will be connected to an expert advisory, new collaborators, and a wider network of funders and distributors. This year-long residency is designed to help further the completion of an original independent work (narrative feature, documentary, web series, etc.) and will provide a Chicago-based film/media maker with the following:
  • $10,000 in funding
  • Meeting/convening space at the Chicago Cultural Center, with access to multiple downtown amenities
  • An advisory board comprised of experts in the independent film and broadcast field
  • Additional promotion, resources, and mentorship
  • Industry+ Badge at the Chicago International Film Festival's 2017 Industry Days and slot in the Pitch session
IFI Residents will be required to make a public presentation of their project at the completion of the residency, participate as a lead in the Producers Apprenticeship Program (details to come), and provide a final report and budget.
Apply through August 31 at Residency to be announced in October 2017.
