The Chicagoland High School Film Festival 2013 will be held at the Latin School of Chicago’s Wrigley Theatre (59 W. North Blvd), Friday, May 17, from 6:30-9:00 pm. Created by and for Latin School students in 2002 as Zwinglifest, the event has since expanded to include students from both public and private schools with the opportunity to share their expressive voice while gaining insight from an expert panel of some of the best in the business. This is an opportunity for student filmmakers to come together and collaborate and share what they love: film.
