  • Submission Info

The Chicago Underground Film Festival exists to showcase the defiantly independent filmmaker. Our mission is to promote films and videos that dissent radically in form, technique, or content from the indie mainstream and to present adventurous works that challenge and transcend commercial and audience expectations…if you suspect your film is underground…it probably is.

Year established: 1994

Is this festival exclusively animation?: No - this is a film festival
