2020 LCFF

Due to the COVID-19 worldwide pandemic, the majority of the 10th Lake County Film Festival was held online.

Titles were available from November 4th – 16th. Two in-person screenings were held at the Gorton Center in Lake Forest, Illinois on Sunday, November 14.

You can view the main web page for that year’s festival, and the press release archive.
