Justin Simien's "Dear White People" will get one last major film festival screening before its theatrical release, at the Chicago International Film Festival.
Dear White People

What is already one of the most talked about black films of the year (and definitely on this site) is Justin Simien’s "Dear White People," and it won’t be released until October 17 though Lionsgate and Roadside Attractions.

But before its long-awaited national release, it’ll get one last film festival showing; and that will be at the 50th Chicago International Film Festival, running from October 9-23rd.

It’s one of the first films announced this week that will be showcased at this year’s festival, though the complete schedule won’t be officially announced until mid-September.

No word yet if Simien and members of the cast will be present for the CIFF screenings, but it's safe to assume that they will be.
