Chicago, IL - Chicago Filmmakers and Presenting Sponsors Showtime, Comcast, and The L Word are pleased to announce the 26th edition of Reeling, the second-oldest lesbian and gay film festival in the world, and a premiere cultural event for Chicago's LGBT community and film-appreciating audiences. Reeling 2007 will take place November 8-18 and will include almost 70 programs. Screenings will be held at the Chicago History Museum (1601 N. Clark St.), Landmark's Century Centre Cinema (2828 N.

This year's festival is more global than ever, offering work from 28 countries and in genres ranging from romantic comedy to esoteric experimental. The lineup of short films, in particular, is the most impressive in the festival's history, and will introduce audiences to new and emerging artists whose work is sure to be seen again in festivals to come.

Reeling is planning an unprecedented number of special events in conjunction with the films, keeping the party going long after the credits have stopped rolling.
