About the Event
Your favorite intersectional Late Show, #OTVTonight, returns with another genre-defying evening of premieres and stunts to take us to a new dimension, this time . . . in person. That’s right! For the first time since 2019, Open Television (OTV) is back; live and in living color right here at the MCA.
For this special edition of #OTVTonight, witness the world premiere of hand-picked shorts and pilots created by 2021–2022 #OTVFellows. These dynamic storytellers are recipients of OTV’s annual fellowship program, now in its fifth year, providing support, mentorship, and education to intersectional filmmakers from Chicago and beyond.
Join us for this special night of performances, creator interviews, a live DJ, a few special surprises, and of course, a return to fellowship. Remember, the future of television is intersectional. If you don’t believe it, let OTV show you.
