What is ExTV?

Don’t let the TV portion of our name fool you. ExTV isn’t another antiquated college closed circuit station broadcasting your daily cafeteria lunch specials – no way! We are a group of people excited about discovering new ways of making and showing! We welcome all your zips and zaps, dings and bleeps, and everything else in between. ExTV is here to help students who have a passion for the moving image to connect and inspire each other to create and exhibit!

Your work can be seen around the world on our website (extvsaic.org), by SAIC on monitors around campus, and by millions of Chicago homes on CANTV (Chicago Access Television).

If that isn’t enough, ExTV also produces the annual ExFEST, ExTV’s Film/Video Festival, where the community comes together in celebration of our Student Film/Video work. This is an amazing opportunity for you to get your work shown, seen, and possibly win prizes!

We welcome you to participate, submit, volunteer, or find employment with us. As we like to say, “We’re not just experimental in what we show, but also how we show it.” So sky’s the limit!
