The Future of Independent Film in Chicago

@ Chicago Humanities Festival


Opening Friday, September 18th, from 12PM - 1PM


When Chicago filmmaker Kris Rey was working on her latest feature, I Used to Go Here, she couldn’t possibly have imagined that the plight of her lead character—a writer (Gillian Jacobs) forced to cancel her book tour—might be a scenario we’d all be facing. Now the impact of COVID-19 has audiences and filmmakers alike trying to figure out what comes next. Join Rey, award-winning Chicago filmmaker Jennifer Reeder (A Million Miles Away), and CHF’s Marilynn Thoma Artistic Director Alison Cuddy for a conversation about how the movie industry has adapted to the pandemic and what the future looks like for filmmaking in Chicago.

This week’s programs presented with the support of WTTW.
