Chicago’s Reeling Film Festival

LGBT films light up the Midwest capital.


If you are looking for something fun to do in the Chicago area on September 18th, head over to the Reeling Film Festival: The Chicago LGBT international film festival. The festival, which takes place at Landmark's Century Centre Cinema, will be screening the latest LGBT films, and is known as one of the most important cultural events in Chicago. This event brings LGBT from all over the Midwest who consider this festival to be the cinematic highlight of the year.

            The lesbian highlight of the festival is sure to be Anatomy of a Love Seen, directed by Marina Rice Bader, who also has a key role. This film-within-a-film depicts the messiest of relationships: Zoe and Mal fell in love with each other while filming a love scene six months ago, but have since broken up. Now they have to re-shoot the love scene for a broadcast deal, and things could not be tenser on the movie set. Writer/director Marina Rice Bader (producer of Elena Undone) brings us a lush, cinematic depiction of just how raw and messy true love can be. Zoe and Mal obviously still have feelings for each other, but can they set aside their emotional baggage and fears and admit that, with an entire crew watching? Even if they can’t, how will they successfully shoot this love scene?

            Other lesbian and queer girl cinematic highlights include Appropriate Behavior, The Foxy Merkins, Out in the Night, What It Was, Of Girls and Horses, and Song For Alexis.


INFO: All films range between $10 and $12, and tickets are available in advance at http://reelingfilmfestival.tix.com
