ChicagoLand Shorts Vol 3 Remix

CHICAGOLAND SHORTS is Full Spectrum Features' annual touring short film series that highlights the incredible diversity of The Windy City and its surrounding communities. The series celebrates the vastness of the Chicagoland experience and provides an outlet for those cinematic voices that often go unheard within the independent film community.
