The Chicago Film Society is proud to announce dates for the second edition of Celluloid Now. From September 21st and through the 24th, CFS will present Celluloid Now 2023,  a series of screenings, workshops, and other events showcasing working analog filmmakers and artists alongside archival rediscoveries and restorations. The Chicago Film Society presented the first Celluloid Now in 2022, screening films by 55 artists from across four continents, all projected in 35mm, 16mm, and super 8 film prints and many receiving their Chicago premiere.

SUBMISSIONS are now open for Celluloid Now 2023! Are you an analog filmmaker? Do you know and like any analog filmmakers? Send them our way! There is no fee to submit to Celluloid Now and all work that meets the criteria outlined in our submission rules will be considered. Celluloid Now accepts every kind of film: narrative, documentary, experimental, home movies, commercials, music videos, multi-projector films, kinescopes, class projects, anything! It just has to be on film. Celluloid Now will pay inbound and outbound shipping for every film in our program.
