Dick Wolf, producer and writer of every show ever – okay just most notably all of the "Law and Order" incarnates and most recently "Chicago Fire" – is making a stop in Chicago at its first ever Film and Media Summit.
Wolf is the keynote speaker for the Chicago Film and Media Summit Sunday, Oct. 20 at the Chicago Cultural Center.
The summit, produced by the City of Chicago’s Department of Cultural Affairs, is a one-day event for filmmakers in the city to learn from various panels, network and view a variety of short films.
Wolf has taken an interest in Chicago over the past two years with his series "Chicago Fire," and his spotlight on Chicago continues with "Chicago PD," starting midseason.
The Film and Media Summit is free, but some panels and speakers require registration, including Wolf's keynote. Only the first 500 who register at the event's website will be able to attend.
Other panels include "Producing: The Chicago Way" with Albert Berger, Zak Piper, Bob Teitel, Christina Varotsi and Laurel Ward, "Feature Trailers that Bring Them In" with Dan Asma and Buddah Jones and more. Attendees can also take part in a case study on the film "The Harvest."
The summit will take place entirely on Oct. 20 from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.. Want more? Discuss this article and others on RedEye's Facebook page.
