The Chicago Feminist Film Festival showcases independent, international film addressing issues of gender and sexuality often missing from mainstream media. This in turn means creating inclusive public spaces for under-represented artists to share their work — particularly women, people of color, queer, and transgender folks, given their struggle for visibility in the mainstream film industry.

The films in the festival cut across genres, including social documentaries, horror, comedies, whimsical films, and romances. You will laugh, you will cry, and you will be delighted by the diversity of representations you see on screen.

Festival Co-Directors Susan Kerns and Michelle Yates (2019)
