Strategy with Jim Vendiola
m is a Filipino-American filmmaker whose work frequently explores heartache, longing, liminality, eros, and pathos. A three-time Newcity Film 50 honoree, his feature debut, HOMESICK, is currently in development with Chicago Film Project.
“The Work” is a Chicago-based, film-focused, interview series with the goal of stimulating substantive one-on-one conversations about Chicago film and the filmmaking process. Fellow Chicago filmmakers, and co-creators, Curtis Matzke and Bradley Powell will serve as host of the upcoming series of ten interviews that will comprise The Work’s inaugural season. The impetus for the interview series started during the COVID lockdown as an informal conversation between friends.
