10/9/22: Media Burn’s 20th Anniversary Video Ball


Many of you have supported Media Burn for almost two decades now. And if you’ve joined us in the past, you know that we throw a good party.

We are excited to announce our 20th anniversary Video Ball, and we want you to be there!

This once-in-a-decade event will take place at the Fairlie event space near West Town. This gorgeous site is conveniently located near Grand and Western with a large complimentary parking lot. We hope you can join us in person for this one-of-a-kind event where you will mingle with artists, enjoy delicious food, and witness spectacular performances.

There will be DJ sets from Sam McAllister of CHIRP Radio, complimentary food and drink from the onsite food truck, video installations, and an interactive Chicago-style election. Join us as we drop the video ball!

One of Media Burn’s partners is the Appalshop film and video archive in Whitesburg, Kentucky. That fifty-year-old collection was devastated in recent floods.
