Join the IFP Chicago Donor Roll 

IFP Chicago turns 30 this year. Our goal is to raise $30,000 by December 31st to continue directly supporting filmmakers for the next 30 years. Help us celebrate! Make your tax deductible donation and join our Honor Roll.


We support both new and established independent filmmakers with a variety of programs every month. We also provide our members exclusive access to screening, partner discounts and voting in the annual Film Independent Spirit Awards.


Our workshops, discussions and seminars explore a wide range of topics related to the art and business of filmmaking. We also host individual screenings of wider-release indies and produce the annual Chicago Underground Film Festival.


Membership provides independent filmmakers, industry professionals and independent film enthusiasts access to resources and opportunities to connect with the film creative community.
