IFP/Chicago will be producing the 15th edition of the “Defiantly independent and deliberately scandalous” (Michael Wilmington, Chicago Tribune) Chicago Underground Film Festival. The five-day event takes place October 29- November 2nd, 2008 at the Viaduct Theater, 3111 N Western Avenue.
Same mission, expanded programs
For 15 years, The Chicago Underground Film Festivalâ€™s mission has been to support and promote innovative films and videos that dissent in form, technique, or content from the â€˜indieâ€™ mainstream. Itâ€™s goal: to create a community for makers and audiences of adventurous work that entertains, pushes boundaries, challenges viewers and transcends expectations.
This year, IFP/Chicago will combine its highly regarded Filmmakers Summit with the fest, incorporating the Summitâ€™s panels and workshops – which provide local filmmakers with access to key programmers, distributors and journalists – with all the screenings and parties that inspired MSNBC Online to call CUFF “A highlight on Chicago’s film festival circuit.”
