Bad Lit,the journal of underground film, had a nice write up on this years festival which which is only days away!

The Chicago Underground Film Festival, the longest running underground film fest in the U.S., is gearing up for its 16th edition that will run in the Windy City on Sept. 10-17. So far there are two festival trailers online. One, directed by Jesse McLean, is embedded above. The other, directed by Kent Lambert, is embedded below. Check ‘em out.

McLean also has a short film, Somewhere Only We Know, screening at CUFF this year. I don’t think Lambert has one screening, although that would be the first time in the past couple of years. Hopefully I’ll have the full lineup on Bad Lit within the next couple of days.

Read the rest here.

Thanks to Bad Lit.

New City has a story on CUFF and what it means to be “underground” in 2009.

Trends emerge during programming. “I never look to program around a predetermined theme, but once the films and videos are chosen patterns emerge,” Wendorf  says. “This year there seems to be a lot of work dealing with ideas about place, home and globalization. Some of the work, like Lucy Raven’s experimental documentary ‘China Town’ deals with this in a very conscious and direct way while other works address these issues from more oblique angles.”
