Chi-Town Small Screen Fest was an inclusive, female run, digital media festival that took place on September 26-27, 2019. Our festival celebrated diversity, the triumph of creating and doing something that most people only ever think of - writing and shooting original ideas. The festival was conceived and produced by Rogue Schmidt, Zoey Danielson, and Laugh Out Loud Theater owner, Lillie Frances, with assistance from Scott McMillin.
