2011 marks Kartemquin's 45th year of producing documentaries that examine and critique society through the stories of real people, making Kartemquin one of the longest running media arts organizations in the world.
Through the last 45 years, Kartemquin has evolved into a multifaceted organization with a variety of programs that support the growing Midwest media arts community. Kartemquin strives to provide a variety of networking and mentoring opportunities for both emerging and experienced filmmakers. Throughout this 45th year we will present a series of local screenings and special events, including collaborations with a number of nonprofits, film festivals and broadcast channels, culminating in a large Chicago event this fall.
