Event Details

This fall, the Backyard Film and Music Fest returns to the proverbial backyard of Northsiders. After a year on the far South Side, the fourth installment of this event will take place on Saturday, October 1st at both the Wicker Park Art Center and Viaduct Theater.


A number of changes were implemented this year, including the addition of a film panel. The film set, scheduled from 2 to 6 p.m. at the WPAC, will feature short films from both local and international artists.   Patrons will also have access to premium libations and several of Chicago’s hottest food trucks throughout the day.


The Festival will also feature the premiere of Chicago band Judson Claiborne performing original material to a 1942 silent documentary.  The film features two explorers traveling from Fairbanks to Seattle by motorcycle, at a time when no roads existed in the area.


Entertainment will resume at the Viaduct Theater for a 9 pm showcase of artists, including San Francisco singer-songwriter Bhi Bhiman, New York (by way of Pittsburgh) Wise Blood, who recently declared their intentions to take over pop music, and Chicago hip-hop group BBU.

Winners of the film set will be presented throughout the evening.
