We’re kicking off Giving Tuesday early this year! Your donation today will be matched up to $10K, doubling your impact! If you donate $50 today, the Reader will receive $100.

The Reader is now a community-funded nonprofit newsroom. Can we count on your support to help keep us publishing?

August 3 is the general deadline for entering the Englewood Film Festival, which serves one of the city’s most blighted neighborhoods and takes place this coming October. The entry fee is $35 for features (over 75 minutes) and $20 for shorts, though late entries will be accepted through September 1 for $50 and $25 respectively.
