Thank you to all of you who joined us on Friday night for Kartemquin's third annual gala.
We love our fair city by the lake, and this September are feeling the love back in return as we host a number of special events and screenings in our home town. Often doubling up on the same night!
First up is the spectacular KTQ Gala tomorrow evening, when 300 of the windy city's smartest and most stylish documentary fans will gather to celebrate our record year of premiering 6 films, and having 15 currently in production,* all of which will be showing exclusive sneak preview clips at the event. We will see you there!
