Episode 95: The 2018 Chicago Critics Film Festival

Erik Childress is not only a podcast host, he also produces a film festival every year. Now in its sixth year at the Music Box Theatre, the Chicago Critics Film Festival brings some of the best films on the festival circuit – handpicked by the city’s film critics – to a local audience. Sundance, SXSW, Toronto and more are all represented here during the week of May 4-10 and Erik discusses with Sergio Mims (producer of the city’s Black Harvest Film Festival in August) some of the highlights as well as some of the ins and outs of programming a film festival.
