Kartemquin Films


Kartemquin is a documentary production and media arts non-profit. We create and distribute independent social issue docs, as well as foster Midwest talent. A home for independent filmmakers, we develop documentary as a vehicle to deepen our understanding of society through everyday human drama.


Involvement in film

We've co-produced and released 4 films, developed 12 projects and worked to nurture many documentarians around Chicago.


We can only do what we do because of organisations and individuals who support our work.
Thank you everyone.
