Filter Photo Festival
The 2013 Filter Photo Festival will take place from September 25th-29th and programming will encompass a variety of events, including workshops, lectures, tours, panel discussions, networking events, and of course the portfolio reviews that remain at the heart of the Festival. The majority of our events will take place in Chicago’s downtown Loop, a vital metropolitan area famous for its world-class cultural institutions.
Filter Photo is a non-profit dedicated to the development and support of Chicago’s photographic community. Filter Photo’s mission is twofold: first, to connect emerging, mid-level, and professional photographers with gallery directors, educators, academics, curators, and other elite photography professionals from across the country, with emphasis on those of the Midwest, and in particular those of Chicago; and second, to secure Chicago as a vibrant center and destination for the national photography community, in part by uniting the city’s different groups and institutions in one event.
