Just a reminder that the regular deadline for this year's Chicago
Underground Film Festival is this Monday March 15th (this is a
postmark deadline). We are particularly looking for new experimental
and documentary features.

The Chicago Underground Film Festival is now accepting submissions for
our 17th festival to be held June 24 – July 1 2010 at the Gene Siskel
Film Center. Early Deadline is March 1 2010, Final Deadline March 15.

Since 1994, the Chicago Underground Film Festival has presented the
finest in new underground, experimental and documentary film and
video. In 2008 the festival entered into a partnership with
IFP/Chicago and in 2009 the festival moved to the state of the art
Gene Siskel Film Center. 2010 will mark another major change for the
festival as we move from our traditional fall dates to the spring.

2009 Chicago Underground Film Festival jury selected the following
works as festival winners. Our 2009 jury was comprised of Patrick
Friel (White Light Cinema/Onion City Film Festival), Adam Hart
(University of Chicago Experimental Film Club) and author and media
activist Anne Elizabeth Moore. Winning films were given one of a kind
hand-made trophies designed by Chicago artist Luke Breckon.
