The Illinois Film Tour
The Illinois Film Tour is an ambitious effort to build a network of exhibition partners around the state at which Illinois-made films are screened. In other words, we want to put Illinois films in front of Illinois audiences. Why? First, because we believe stories have transformative qualities. Sharing stories is a tried-and-true way to manifest a kinder, more humane, and more empathetic society. Secondly, it is our conviction that stories from Illinois are underrepresented in cinema. Our hope is to sprinkle filmmaking seeds throughout the state in the hopes that over time they will sprout and produce a new and diverse generation of Illinois films and filmmakers.
