Bronzeville Film Festival

Student films showcase how the history of Bronzeville will inspire future generations to reach new levels of resiliency and sustainability

The film festival is a platform for the presentation of short documentary films, created by Chicago area high school and college students, to demonstrate the impacts of climate change on the community and to highlight the role of innovative technologies in increasing the community’s resilience.

Earlier this year, ComEd partnered with a selection of schools located in and around the Bronzeville community to challenge students to create a short film that represents the history and resiliency of the historic South Side neighborhood and the potential future impact of climate change on the community. Each group was given access to film equipment, editing software and professional mentoring to help them tell their own unique story about the community of Bronzeville.
