Episode 104 – Reviewing the Chicago and Heartland Film Festivals

On this week’s episode, we’re reviewing the films we saw at the Chicago Film Festival and Heartland Film Festival. We’re joined by our production assistant Sarah Doyle, who spent time at Heartland this year.

We skip What Have You Seen Lately, and go right into the festival films. We start with Chicago and discuss all 10 films we saw, along with our impressions and experiences at the festival, including the famous people we saw.

We then talk about the Heartland Film Festival, discussing the films we saw through screeners, and Sarah reviews the films she saw and the atmosphere of the festival.

It’s a double-length episode this week, and we had a great time seeing the festival films, and talking about them, so strap in and seek out some of these films for yourself!
