Chicagoland Shorts Vol. 6 unites the best of documentary, narrative, experimental, video collage, and animated short works from Chicago filmmakers. The sixth volume of Full Spectrum Features’ traveling short film anthology features recent works from established and up-and-coming makers alike. The eight-film collection travels from the Windy City to Vietnam to Iran, a journey that explores stories of self-discovery, family, childhood, sex, and death. Learn more about each film and the artists who made them.

Established in 2015, Chicagoland Shorts is Full Spectrum Features’ annual touring short film collection that highlights the incredible diversity of Chicago and its surrounding communities.
