Since 2005, South Side Filmmaking Youth Initiative has mentored Chicago Public School students through the script-to-screen process of producing a short film that they write, direct and edit themselves.
This unique program serving Chicago's young Southside filmmaker, has been a huge success. Southside FYI has garnered numerous awards including national and regional Student Emmys, a cover story in the Chicago Tribune and most importantly, new skills, confidence, and preparation for a creative future!
Special thanks to our partners Chicago Public Schools, True Star Foundation, Midwest Independent Film Fest, MB Financial, ABC Bank, Illinois Film Office, Joe Klest, Hyde Park Academy, Experimental Station, Dirk Fletcher/Canon, and Columbia College of Chicago.
