About this event:
In partnership with the Chicago Public Library and the Chicago Tribune Foundation, the Gene Siskel Film Center presents selections from the Best of the Black Harvest Film Festival.
The Curators of Dixon School
Public schools don’t have to be a minefield of metal detectors, minimal expectations and mind-numbing routine. An alternative exists in Chicago at the Dixon Elementary Public School in the Chatham neighborhood, where educators implement the idea that art should be an integral part of the learning environment.

For the past 18 years, the Gene Siskel Film Center of the School of the Art Institute of Chicago has presented the Black Harvest Film Festival. It is the Midwest’s largest and longest–running festival dedicated to telling stories of the black experience.
