NEWS: 2019 Chicago Critics Film Festival Announces Full Film Lineup, Schedule, Special Events and Guests
The Chicago Film Critics Association (CFCA), the Chicago-area print, online and broadcast critics group that celebrates the art of film and film criticism, announced the complete lineup, schedule and special guests expected for the seventh annual Chicago Critics Film Festival, May 17-23 at the Music Box Theatre.
The festival opens with a screening of Saint Frances, a Chicago-set film by Alex Thompson and Kelly O’Sullivan (both of whom will be in attendance) and closes with Paul Harrill’s Light From Light, starring Jim Gaffigan (Harrill and Gaffigan, a Chicago-area native, will also be in attendance). With a line-up including the Chicago premiere of Danny Boyle’s Yesterday, about a young Brit who discovers he’s the only one who’s ever heard of The Beatles, and a 40th Anniversary screening of Alien with actor Tom Skerritt scheduled to attend, the 2019 edition of the only film festival curated by critics promises to be the most impressive yet.
