From January to June of 2015, in partnership with the Chicago International Film Festival, the WBEZ Live Events team will produce four film screenings for WBEZ High Fidelity and Cinema/Chicago members!
The films will all fit a loose theme of Science and each screening will have a WBEZ reporter or program attached to them, including Shannon Heffernan, Filmspotting, Worldview and the Nerdette podcast. The films and the post-show conversations are co-curated by these reporters and shows along with the Chicago International Film Festival.
