Third Coast Filmless Festival

Every other fall, the Third Coast stretches its wings, embraces a film festival model (minus the popcorn - too noisy) and presents the Third Coast Filmless Festival - a celebration of sound, story, and the art of listening.

Radio fans gather in the dark for themed screenings of unforgettable audio documentaries, plus producer Q&As, workshops and our annual awards ceremony honoring the winners of the Third Coast / Richard H. Driehaus Foundation Competition.

Check out highlights from the 2013 Filmless Festival and watch the "audio logos" that kicked off each screening, on our recap page.


2013 TCFF

Thanks to all who came out for the 2013 Filmless Festival, held October 19 & 20 at the Old Town School of Folk Music in Chicago. We had a blast, and hope you did too. (In fact, you can tell us all about that in this survey, if you haven't yet.) 

Stay tuned for highlights, photos and other Filmless nostalgia, coming soon. And in the meantime - enjoy a virtual, Pidgey-approved mini-cupcake, on us.
