Chicago’s Reeling LGBTQ Film Festival to use in-person/virtual format
The organizers of Reeling: The Chicago LGBTQ+ International Film Festival said they will have a hybrid in-person and virtual format for this year.
The film festival is produced by Chicago Filmmakers, Gilead and the AARP.
Reeling was all virtual last year because of the COVID-19 pandemic. Organizers said in a press release that last year’s festival was a success, so they decided to have the 2021 festival as a hybrid.
Opening night is on Thursday, Sept. 23, at Chicago’s Music Box Theatre. In-person screenings will be at Landmark Theatre, followed by virtual screenings.
“We’re thrilled to get back to showing films on the big screen and look forward to seeing our audiences again, especially those familiar faces who attend the festival every year,” said Brenda Webb, Reeling Film Festival Founder, and Executive Director of Chicago Filmmakers.
More details will be announced soon along with the selected films.
