Board Membership

Are you interested in helping to foster the creation, appreciation, and understanding of independent film in Chicago?

If the answer is yes, then we may have just the volunteer opportunity for you! Chicago Filmmakers is always open to considering qualified candidates for board membership.

We’re looking for individuals who are passionate about film and video as media for personal and artistic expression, and who believe in the potential of film and video to have strong social and community impact. Chicago Filmmakers is particularly seeking Board members with interest in marketing and communications, experience in fundraising, and knowledge of the local independent film community. Previous Board experience is helpful but not necessary.

Board membership goes beyond traditional volunteering and into the highest level of visionary leadership for the organization, assuming legal and financial responsibilities while serving as a community ambassador for the mission. Serving as a Board member provides a unique opportunity to put your passion for a social cause into action by applying your experience and expertise to help advance an organization’s impact. It's a rewarding way to fulfill your need to serve your community while learning new skills that can enhance your own career.

If you are interested in supporting independent filmmaking by joining the Chicago Filmmakers Board of Directors, please contact Brenda Webb, Executive Director, at to learn more.
