Video Data Bank at the Chicago Underground Film Festival

Lindsay Bosch

The Chicago Undeground Film Festival  is turning 21!  The festival is celebrating its legal age with a run from April 2 through 6 at Chicago's Logan Theater.  
Founded in 1993, The Chicago Underground Film Festival (CUFF) is a year-round organization dedicated to the work of film and video makers with defiantly independent visions. Unlike many other “independent” film events our goal is not to imitate old guard, market-driven events such as Sundance but Instead to focus on the artistc, aesthetic and fun side of independent filmmaking. CUFF promotes works that dissent radically in form, content and technique from both the tired conventions of Hollywood and the increasingly stagnant IndieWood mainstream.

VDB is excited that this year's fest showcases a number of VDB new releases among them:
