15 YEARS OF THE CHICAGO UNDERGROUND FILM FESTIVAL
Festival Director Bryan Wendorf in person!
Friday, October 3, 2008
Roger Ebert once said of the Chicago Underground Film Festival, “What you get for your money is not just admission to the films, but admission to a subculture.” For 15 years, CUFF has exhibited the vibrant media emerging from Chicago’s schools, production houses, music and performance scenes, and occasionally, from out of the blue. Both programs, co-curated by CUFF co-founder and Artistic Director Bryan Wendorf and Amy Beste, curator of the Conversations At The Edge Series, charts the festival’s history through the city’s own.
