Recap: Festival Launch Party

Published: August 1, 2016  |  Filed under: Festival News

Festival season officially arrived on July 20 as we celebrated the winning design from the Poster Competition with friends at Leslie Hindman Auctioneers in Chicago’s West Loop. Transforming the chic gallery space for a Festival fête, guests enjoyed an evening of cocktails and small bites as we revealed Ollie Boyd’s “Framed by the Love of Film” as this year’s campaign and kicked off preparations and announcements for the 52nd Chicago International Film Festival.

Before and after the big announcements, guests enjoyed food selections from Feast & Imbibe, accompanied by drinks from Festival partners Stella Artois, Chloe Wine Collection and Wansas Tequila (served in vintage glassware from The Festive Frog, no less). In a space lit by Sound Investment, a DJ courtesy of Cage & Aquarium entertained amid walls featuring past Festival posters.

Enjoy the photos from this exceptional night, and make plans to join us at the 52nd Chicago International Film Festival, October 13-27. Passes are now on sale!
