The Chicago Underground Film Festival Presents "As Above So Below: A CUFF Satellite Sighting"
The Chicago Underground Film Festival kicks off 2016 with "AS ABOVE SO BELOW: A CUFF Satellite Sighting," a screening event featuring five locally produced short films on Friday, January 29, 2016, at 7:30 PM (door open at 7:00 PM), at Co-Prosperity Sphere in Bridgeport (3219 S. Morgan Street).
This special screening will consist of the following award-winning and critically acclaimed short films by Chicago filmmakers, which screened at the 22nd Annual Chicago Underground Film Festival last May: BITE RADIUS by Spencer Parsons, recently named by Newcity film critic Ray Pride as one of the top five short films of 2015; the comedy NIGHT OF THE BLOOD SQUATCH by Kenny Reed; the animated film THE LINGERIE SHOW by Laura Harrison, winner of the CUFF's 2015 Made in Chicago Award, which went on to screen at the prestigious New York Film Festival at Lincoln Center; the "video comic book" SOME SOUTHERN COUNTRY by Michael Paul Lopez; and the moody horror short VIOLETS by Jim Vendiola, winner of CUFF's 2015 Audience Award. All filmmakers will be in attendance and participate in a post-screening discussion moderated by Nicole Bernardi-Reis, independent film producer and president of the IFP Chicago board of directors.
Doors open at 7:00 PM and the screening will begin at 7:30 PM, with a brief intermission in the middle.
Admission is $7-10 sliding scale at the door.
