The 11th Lake County Film Festival will be celebrating its longest film festival yet in-person and virtually, with twelve days of in-person films November 4 – 15, and twelve days of our online virtual festival November 18 – 29. Today we are announcing the first twenty features chosen for the 2021 Lake County Film Festival.
Opening night of the 2021 Lake County Film Festival will be held at the John & Nancy Hughes Theater at the Gorton Community Center in Lake Forest, IL, followed by over 100 screenings during the next 10 days at The College Of Lake County in Grayslake, IL. “Last year’s virtual festival highlighted just how integral the college is to the film festival”, said festival director Nat Dykeman. “Having all of these facilities under one roof makes the festival much more feasible.” Ali O’Brien, Vice President of Community & Workforce Partnerships at CLC, expressed that “the college is looking forward to hosting the festival as part of our commitment to grow and support cultural enrichment across the county. The LCFF is a great example of partnering together to celebrate the arts, local talent, and independent films.”
The festival has a new screening venue this year at Three Brothers Theatre in Waukegan. Three Brothers will be hosting almost forty additional screenings from November 5 – 15. “We’re excited to host the Lake County Film Festival at Three Brothers Theatre in Waukegan”, Josh Beadle, executive director of Three Brothers Theater said, “and we are honored to serve as another screening venue in Lake County for this important event. It has been a dream for us for years to bring a film festival to Waukegan and this offers an even better opportunity to partner with an established and growing event that connects all of the County together. The slate of movies this year will make you think, make you feel, and entertain you all week long.”
