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 Festival’s mission has been to support and promote innovative films and videos that dissent in form, technique, or content from the ‘indie’ mainstream. It’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 Summit’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.”
