Supporting independent filmmakers in every stage of the process!
The Gene Siskel Film Center offers theater rental during non-programming hours at very reasonable rates. Our facility is perfect for Kickstarter or Indiegogo screenings, press or publicity screenings, or even just to test the exhibition quality of your film! Special independent filmmaker rates are available for non-admission screenings during non-programming hours.
Screening your film at the Film Center:
There are a couple of ways to get your film to be a part of our regular programming. We have many festivals and series series throughout the year, as well as our regularly scheduled programming. The Gene Siskel Film Center is passionate about supporting local filmmakers and providing opportunity for exposure. To submit your finished, feature length film for programming consideration, mail a screener of the entire film (not trailers!) to the attention of Director of Programming Barbara Scharres at 164 N. State Street, Chicago, IL 60601. Make sure to include your contact information.
