In business for 27 years, Chicago Filmmakers has become a Chicago institution. Its mission is to provide "an opportunity for artists to make films outside the mainstream marketplace, to distribute and exhibit this work, as well as to build audiences and to increase media attention for it." To that end, it offers a $50 co-op membership that provides access to equipment, including 16mm production and post production equipment, information, resource and education. Equipment access is available on a 24 hour basis. Screenings of innovative independent film and video makers are held at the Kino-eye Theater, often with the artists there in person to discuss their work with the audience.
