2007 Chicago Underground Film Festival: Call For Entries

By Mike Everleth ⋅ March 23, 2007

Another underground festival turns 14 this year. And that would be the legendary Chicago Underground Film Festival, which will run Aug. 22-26, 2007 in the Windy City. CUFF is, of course, a major underground institution thanks in large part to its hard working founder and director Bryan Wendorf who’s still going strong. Their mission statement simply says thus:

Unlike many other “independent” film events our goal is not to imitate old guard, market-driven festivals such as Sundance. Instead we seek to create our own particular niche by presenting an accessible, user-friendly showcase for Avant-Garde and cult cinema.

Deadlines this year:

Earlybird Deadline:
May 1, 2007 ($30 Entry Fee)

Regular Deadline:
May 15, 2007 ($35 Entry Fee)

Late Deadline:
June 1, 2007 ($40 Entry Fee)

You can submit either through their official website or, as they prefer, through Withoutabox.com
