The concept began in 2001 with the first competition in Washington, D.C., and was founded by the current Executive Producers, Mark Ruppert and Liz Langston. It has grown exponentially from there, with Chicago joining the mix in 2005. The competition includes cities from all over the United States and the world, culminating in “Filmapalooza,” where winners from each city will compete against each other. This year’s Filmapalooza is in Paris, France, in March of 2018.

Locally, the registration for the 2017 competition closes on Monday, July 31st (with late registration through August 15th), the filmmaking will take place on August 25th through the 27th, the screenings will be at the historic Music Box Theatre on September 10th and 11th, and the awards ceremony will take place on September 14th at the Music Box.

  • Not One Batu

    CHICAGO – The State of Hawaii may be one of the most misunderstood in America.

Also unimaginable is the drug use of island residents, but playwright and Hawaiian native Hannah li-Epstein wrote about it in her stage play “Not One Batu,” now in its Premiere Chicago run at the Berger Park Coach House through July 28th, 2018.
