Reeling: The Chicago Lesbian & Gay International Film Festival

 

OVERVIEW

Reeling: The Chicago Lesbian & Gay International Film Festival is the second oldest film festival of its kind in the US, and prides itself on showcasing the best LGBT films and videos each and every year.
From award-winning international feature films to social documentaries to experimental shorts, Reeling has always presented a range of genres that demonstrate the rich diversity of work being produced. Not only has Reeling become one of the most important cultural events for Chicagoans, it also attracts LGBT people from throughout the Midwest who consider the festival to be the highlight of their cinematic year.
Reeling 2011 is presenting 60+ programs over 10 days from November 3-12.

Mission

The mission of Reeling is to recognize the important artistic contributions that lesbian, gay and transgender filmmakers have made to our culture; to educate the general population and sensitize them to lesbian, gay and transgender issues; to investigate the history of LGBT film, including the stereotyping that has been a major part of this history; and to counteract this stereotyping with valid, meaningful and diverse portrayals of those in the LGBT community.

The festival provides a unique opportunity for the celebration of these identities for a community too often misrepresented or ignored in mainstream film and television.

Funding

Chicago Filmmakers receives funding from the Illinois Arts Council, the Gaylord and Dorothy Donnelley Foundation, The MacArthur Fund at the Richard H. Driehaus Foundation, and a City Arts 3 Grant from the City of Chicago Department of Cultural Affairs.
