The Chicago International Film Festival’s youth/student film festival CineYouth is May 9-11, 2013! Held at Columbia College Chicago, this event is FREE and open to the public of all ages.
Opening Night (May 9 at 7PM) welcomes actor, writer and director John Francis Daley (Freaks and Geeks, Bones, Horrible Bosses) to share his experience in the entertainment industry and participate in a Q&A with audience members. There is a catered reception following the discussion.
On May 10 & 11 short films from filmmakers 21 years old and younger will be screened and students may participate in a 24-hour filmmaking challenge.
The Festival closes on May 11 at 6PM with the CineYouth Awards Ceremony.
