5 FILMS BY WOMEN PRESENTS: 
BAND OF SISTERS

Support the Firehouse Fund by getting your ticket to the first screening of our 5 Films by Women series, a collection of powerful documentaries from five amazing local filmmakers! 

All proceeds from the series benefit Chicago Filmmakers’ fundraising campaign to renovate a historical landmark firehouse and convert it into a vibrant media arts center for the community and a permanent home for our 40+ year old organization. For more info, please visit chicagofilmmakers.org/firehouse.

Each of the award-winning films featured in this doc series was fiscally sponsored by Chicago Filmmakers, and now in its time of need, these filmmakers have offered to use their work to help raise funds for the organization that first supported them. 

Kicking off the 5 Films by Women series is:

Band of Sisters 
by Mary Fishman

Sunday, Oct. 11 at 
2:30pm

Loyola University – Damen Student Center Cinema

(6511 N. Sheridan Rd.)

This screening is co-presented by the Gannon Center for Women and Leadership and the School of Communication at Loyola University Chicago.

OCT. 11, 2:30 PM

Inspired by Vatican II and the great social movements of the 1960s and 70s, Catholic sisters in the U.S. made a startling transformation from obedient “daughters of the church” to citizens of the world. BAND OF SISTERS weaves this remarkable history with current day stories of nuns on the cutting edge who work for social justice.

Did you know? Chicago Filmmakers is buying a firehouse.

The historic landmark firehouse at 5720 N. Ridge Ave will be our new permanent location, as well as the central hub for Reeling: The Chicago LGBTQ+ Int’l Film Fest and Onion City Experimental Film + Video Fest. But our future home needs a lot of work! With your support, we can transform this vacant building from 1928 into a cornerstone for diversity and literacy in media arts, enabling Chicago Filmmakers to extend its impact in unprecedented ways!

Chicago Filmmakers has been the champion for diversity in media arts in Chicago for more than 40 years. Through filmmaker services, grants to digital media artists, classes in digital filmmaking, and screenings, we will continue to provide a platform for bold, independent filmmakers whose stories are rarely supported by or seen in mainstream media. With your help, we look forward to creating a vibrant media arts center for the community within this historical landmark in the Edgewater neighborhood.
