The 2018 Whitaker St. Louis Filmmakers Showcase is an annual presentation of the nonprofit Cinema St. Louis, that serves as the area’s primary venue for films made by local artists. The Showcase screens works that were written, directed, edited, or produced by St. Louis natives or films with strong local ties. The film programs that will screen from July 13-22 serve as the Showcase’s centerpiece. The programs range from full-length fiction features and documentaries to multi-film compilations of fiction and documentary shorts. Programs with feature-length films include post-screening Q&As with filmmakers. The 2018 event will take place over two consecutive weekends in mid July at Brown Hall on the campus of Washington University in St. Louis.
