Chicago Filmmakers today issued the following statement regarding the Onion City Film Festival:
Dear Onion City Film Festival goers,
In light of the growing concern over the Coronavirus outbreak as well as the recent recommendations for cancelling larger gatherings, Chicago Filmmakers has decided to postpone the Onion City Film Festival, until further notice. All ticket holders will receive refunds.
There are currently no cases reported among members of the Chicago Filmmakers community, so this is a preemptive measure.
We are closely monitoring this situation with the local health authorities. At this time, all other screenings and classes will continue to run as scheduled, until further notice. We will keep everyone informed should any other programs be affected.
We apologize for the inconvenience, and thank you for your patience and understanding as we continue to assess the situation.
- The staff at Chicago Filmmakers
