Kartemquin Films announced today the recipients of $150,000 in grants at the 2018 Kartemquin Films Empowering Truth Benefit Luncheon at the Union League Club of Chicago.
Exceeding its initial fundraising goal of $30,000, Eating Up Easter raised $35,182 in finishing funds through its Kickstarter campaign.
A new Kartemquin film by filmmaker and Easter Island native Sergio Rapu, Eating Up Easter follows members of the native Rapanui community on Easter Island as they battle the globalizing effects of a booming tourism industry.
Kartemquin's very first Fall Festival, in partnership with ArcLight Cinemas Chicago, spanned three days and exhibited 26 films, 62% of which were directed by filmmakers of color and 50% by women. We were thrilled to be joined by so many members of the diverse Chicago documentary community, and to share in the viewing of groundbreaking work and lively post-screening discussions.
