Shorts Night at the Midwest Independent Film Festival

By Chris Karr in Arts & Entertainment on Oct 3, 2006 4:12PM

Last month, the Midwest Independent Film Festival premiered the feature-length drama, Repetition. It was a very good -- but heavy -- drama done here in the city.

This month, the folks at the MWFF are changing up the pace a bit. Instead of features, this month's roster includes a whole slew of short films, including short dramas, holiday animations, music videos, and the ever-popular comedy shorts. Five of the films will be shown in Chicago for the first time, while some others (such as Ben-Hur Uribe's Por Amor) have graced the screens of the MWFF before (but still come highly recommended).

Showtime starts at 7:30 p.m. at the Landmark Century Cinema Theater at 2828 N. Clark St. The venue is a few blocks to the east of the Diversey El stop and is located on the routes of the 22 Clark and 36 Broadway buses.
