The 2014 Filter Photography Festival is organized by Filter Photo, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. Filter Photo’s mission is twofold: first, to connect emerging, mid-level, and professional photographers with gallerists, educators, academics, curators, and other elite photography professionals from across the country, with emphasis on those of the Midwest, and in particular those of Chicago; and second, to secure Chicago as a vibrant center and destination for the national photography community, in part by uniting the city’s different groups and institutions in one event.
