Third Coast Filmless Festival:
high school takeover
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.
ChiArts, here we come... The 2015 Third Coast Filmless Festival: High School Takeover is set for October 23-25 at Chicago's High School for the Arts.
Our mega-listening party is packed with performances, audio screenings, storytelling workshops and sonic hoopla featuring radio/podcast faves Sean Cole (This American Life), Starlee Kine (Mystery Show) and Alix Spiegel (Invisibilia) among many others.
Check out the Filmless program, complete schedule and the list of presenting artists.

Sorry, but we're no longer accepting volunteer applications.
Filmless takes place at ChiArts, 2714 W Augusta Blvd, in Chicago’s Humboldt Park neighborhood. During breaks between events enjoy the neighborhood’s growing restaurant scene (a few faves coming soon) or take a stroll through the 200-acre park, one of Chicago's crown jewels.
TRANSIT AND PARKING
Many roads lead to ChiArts. There are plentiful public transit options, or pick up a Divvy bike - there's a docking right at California and Augusta. If driving is your best choice, this map offers directions and parking info.
OUT OF TOWNERS
We encourage you to seek out an Airbnb in Humboldt Park or neighboring Wicker Park, Ukrainian Village, West Town or Logan Square. Hotels downtown can be pricey in October, but not so bad if you find a roommate or two. Downtown hotels are a 30 minute transit ride, or a 15 minute cab/Uber, from ChiArts.
Drop us a line with any/all Filmless questions we haven’t answered here, and see you soon!
