(06/19/09) Film Festivals

The Hola Mexico Film Festival begins today in Chicago at Century Centre Cinema. The festival features fourteen of Mexico's finest films. There's also an afterparty at Ole Lounge with special guest DJ, from Los Angeles, Santi. (Note - DJ Angelfuk (me) will not be playing at this event). The festival runs through today through June 25th.

There's also another film festival going on that isn't getting quite the hype and I must mention it because it's also part of what's going on in our city and my dear friend, artist Ray Arroyo, designed the artwork for the festival. Auuu! The Chicago Independent Film Festival began June 17th and runs until tomorrow. The films are being screened at Northeastern Illinois University, Instituto Cervantes and in my 'hood over at the A.P.O. Building.

After tonight's screenings at either of the festivals, head over to Decima Musa for the Pilsen Soundtrack Fundraiser with performances by Los Vicios De Papa, Fandanguero and more. It's going to be a great night of culture..."Fo' sho!"

Tomorrow night, Depeche Mode vs Morrissey Tribute at The Olympic Theater. Who do you like most?

Here's my vote:

See you at the movies!
