Come out to the Chicago Anarchist Film Festival

Posted by atrain

With the absence of Finding our Roots or larger anarchist gatherings, the 10th Chicago Anarchist Film Festival offers an opportunity to share ideas, reunite with old friends, meet new people and watch amazing radical films.  CAFF points to the importance of long term projects development in movement building and creating momentum.

From CAFF:

Celebrate with us, as the 10th Annual Chicago Anarchist Film Festival commemorates its decennial anniversary of insurrectionary cinema with six nights of films and much more! This year’s festival is twice as big with more to think about! Happy Birthday CAFF!

CAFF invites anarchists, anti-authoritarians, the anarcho-friendly and the anarcho-curious to experience radical cinema from around the world with features, shorts, documentaries, animation, and found footage. Anarchist films cross boundaries, take risks, and subvert passivity. With this year’s theme, Crossing Boundaries, CAFF seeks to project voices that transcend borders and cultures — voices that do not normally get heard. That said, viewers will also find humor, silliness and fun in the offerings. With several More Than Film presentations/workshops, the curatorial team has re-imagined the film fest as more than “seats facing a screen”— we also seek to engage the audience in dialogue with filmmakers and activists. In honor of our decade of existence, we will also be featuring Circle-A-Archives selections from throughout the festival’s history that showcase not only our favorites, but also important moments in politics and culture.
