2024 ZONTA Film Festival

The Zonta Club of the Joliet Area presents, "Through Her Eyes," our fourth annual film festival on Thursday, March 21, 2024, at Joliet Junior College’s Renaissance Center.

Zonta  hosts the festival during Woman’s History Month to bring awareness to these issues locally and for the purpose of raising funds to support the endowed scholarships that the Zonta Club of Joliet established for women attending Joliet Junior College.

This year the ZCJA has partnered with Wild and Scenic Films to curate films that impact women and the environment. 

The evening will begin with the Boss Up Reception from 4:00 to 5:30 pm, where you can network and enjoy appetizers and cocktails while being serenaded by local entertainer, Karen Isberg. 

The dinner and program begins at 5:30 pm with family-style meals at tables and the viewing of seven short films with discussion moderated by emcee, Caroline Portlock. 
 

Emcee Caroline Portlock is the Director of the Workforce Investment Board of Will County. She serves as the President of the Illinois Workforce Partnership and  was honored to be the 35th recipient of the Athena Award through the Joliet Region Chamber of Commerce & Industry. She is a member of the Kiwanis Club of Joliet as well as the Visitation and Aid Society and volunteers for several local organizations.  Caroline feels destined to emcee a film festival because in college she worked for General Cinema as a Manager which included overseeing operations and popping popcorn at their Jefferson Square Mall, Ford City Cinema, and the Woodridge Cinema locations.

Tickets, $60 each, on sale now via Eventbrite
