Master Session on Producing with Neal Edelstein.


Join the community

Our story began with a group of Chicago filmmakers deciding to get together to talk about their work. This simple and foundational principle continues to guide our Artistic Development initiatives as well as our Community Engagement programs. We believe that ideas, collaborations, and solutions emerge when people come together.

For filmmakers and producers of creative media: Among other benefits, IFP Chicago membership gives you access to discounted production services, free submission to our Artist Development initiatives such as The Pitch at Industry Days and At The Table, participation in our works-in-progress feedback screenings, inclusion in Filmmaker Friday (our weekly BYO get together) and free or discounted access to our year-round workshops, panels, and speaker events.

For cinephiles and casual moviegoers: IFP Chicago membership comes with discounted admission to the Chicago Underground Film Festival, which features the cutting edge in avant-garde cinema, free admission to advanced screenings of new releases, inclusion in Filmmaker Friday (our weekly BYO get together), and free or discounted access to our year-round workshops, panels, and speaker events.

Whatever your interest in creative media, there is a place for you here.
