Event description

Description

Chicago Filmmakers invites you to join us in celebrating the opening of our new home, a 1928 Chicago Historic Landmark firehouse purchased from the city of Chicago in 2016. After extensive renovations, Chicago Filmmakers has restored the retired firehouse and developed it into a new space that will be a vital cultural addition to the Edgewater community.

The event on Saturday, April 28th will begin with a Ribbon Cutting Ceremony at 11am with 48th Ward Alderman Harry Osterman; Christine Dudley, Director of the Illinois Film Office; Rich Moskal, Director of the Chicago Film Office; Dr. Eric Freedman, Dean of the School of Media Arts at Columbia College Chicago; actor Chris "Mouch" Stolte, one of the stars of NBC's Chicago Fire; and other film industry and community leaders.

An Open House will immediately follow the ribbon cutting, with Chicago Filmmakers' staff, board members, and instructors on hand to greet visitors and share information about Chicago Filmmakers' programs. Refreshments will be provided courtesy of Honest Foods Catering.

This is a FREE event open to all.
