What can I say about the Palestine Film Festival? It’s fascinating. Go.
Other years it has been spread over many locations throughout the city, many of them in tiny spaces that were, shall we say, not in areas or buildings that were well kept up. The scheduling left something to be desired too, the most intriguing films sometimes being shown on Easter Sunday.
This year the event will be April 25-May 8 at the Siskel Film Center, 164 N. State St.
Tickets to movies are $9 general admission, $7 students, $4 for students and faculty of the School of the Art Institute and staff of the Art Institute, and $5 for Film Center members. Tickets may be purchased at the Film Center Box Office, which opens at 5 p.m. on weekdays and at 2 p.m. on weekends. General admission tickets are also available through Ticketmaster.
