We’re kicking off Giving Tuesday early this year! Your donation today will be matched up to $10K, doubling your impact! If you donate $50 today, the Reader will receive $100.

The Reader is now a community-funded nonprofit newsroom. Can we count on your support to help keep us publishing?

Culled from the vaults of the Chicago Film Archive, this two-hour shorts program dates from 1933 (a six-minute document of the Chicago World’s Fair) to the present (a five-minute collaboration between local filmmaker Kent Lambert and music group Cave).
