Location of Documentary Summit Chicago
The Documentary Summit 2012 Chicago is hosted by Columbia College Chicago, located in Chicago's South Loop. On Chicago's grid, Columbia is generally located around "200 east and 600 south" (which is the way Chicagoans talk). That makes the campus easily accessible by the Dan Ryan (90); Lake Shore Drive; and the CTA's Red, Green, and Orange lines - as well as several bus routes.
