Filter Photo is a nonprofit festival, exhibition, and educational space in Chicago's West Town neighborhood. We organize the annual Filter Photo Festival, a multi-day celebration of photography that includes workshops, lectures, exhibitions, and portfolio reviews.


Join us at Filter Space year-round where we exhibit a robust roster of internationally recognized artists and host social, educational, and professional development activities for photo-based artists and the broader community.
