Mission Statement

Reeling provides a unique opportunity for the celebration of lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender identity for a community too often misrepresented or ignored in mainstream film and television. The mission of Reeling is to recognize the important artistic contributions that lesbian and gay filmmakers have made to our culture; to educate the general population and sensitize them to lesbian and gay issues; to investigate the history of gays and lesbians in 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 gays and lesbians.

Description

Reeling: The Chicago Lesbian & Gay International Film Festival is the second oldest film festival of its kind in the world and prides itself on showcasing the best lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender films and videos from around the world. From international feature films to social issue documentaries to experimental shorts, Reeling has always presented a range of genres that demonstrates the rich diversity of work being produced. The festival is not only one of the most important cultural events for Chicago audiences; it also attracts many people from throughout the Midwest who consider the festival to be the highlight of their cinematic year. Reeling presents more that 100 films and videos over 11 days in November.
