If you’re in Chicago between Nov. 2-11, head over to Reeling 25, the Chicago Gay & Lesbian International Film Festival. This festival, which is one of the oldest LGBT film festivals, is one of the very few founded by a woman, Brenda Webb.
Films by and about queer women include: Mom, Red Doors, Puccini for Beginners, Loving Annabelle, What’s Up Scarlet? and The Gymnast. Documentaries worth screening include FtF: Female to Femme, Boy I Am and Pick Up the Mic.
And if you’ve got a short attention span, you might check out the short film programs, which include Dangerous Dykes, Dyke Drama and Toy With Me. This has gotta be the only place you can see “girl gangs, music videos, dominatrix, surfer chicks, and rabble rousing Texans” all in one place (that’s Dangerous Dykes, of course).
