Doc10 Film Festival right around the corner -- Daily Journal Kankakee, IL

The Chicago Media Project’s Doc10 Film Festival is gearing up for its fourth year with 10 award-winning documentaries from other film festivals, such as the prestigious 2019 Sundance Film Festival.

The festival will take place April 11-14 in Lincoln Square at the Davis Theatre (4614 N. Lincoln Ave., Chicago). It will showcase thought-provoking films, a VR-RV (Virtual Reality), special panel discussions and workshops as well as opening and closing night parties.

The films touch upon politics (“Knock Down The House,” “Mike Wallace is Here”) and our current immigration system (“The Infiltrators”) to environmental issues (“Anthropocene: The Human Epoch”) and religious beliefs (“Hail Satan?”) and more.

Film directors also will be on hand to discuss their productions after the screenings in moderated Q&A sessions, adding an exciting component to your film viewing experience.

Many of this festival’s past films have garnered nominations and wins at major award ceremonies including the Academy Awards (“Minding the Gap,” “RBG”) and the Critics’ Choice Documentary Awards (“Won’t You Be My Neighbor?”).

All-inclusive passes start at $250 and individual tickets are $16, with a range of options, such as a “Date Night Package” and free discussions requiring an RSVP.
