Community Film Festival inspires attendees with Powerful Vision
Englewood Film Festival’s fifth year celebration bring powerful celebrities to Chicagoland.
It is October and tickets for the Englewood International Film Festival (EIFF) are now on sale. This is the fifth year that EIFF has been apart of the community and they show no signs of slowing down. The festival will be held Thursday, October 22 through Sunday, October 25, 2015. While embarking on their fifth year the theme for this year’s festival is “Vision.”
The EIFF founders have been advertising on various social media platforms about the tickets and workshops that are apart of the weekend festivities. One workshop creating a lot of buzz is the actor’s workshop “Power of the Actor” with Naturi Naughton and Wendy Mckenzie.This ticket gives you the opportunity to submit your bio and headshot for consideration by Swirl Films and In The Wink of An Eye Casting for upcoming projects.
This year the festival selection committee has received several films from here in Chicago to Iraq. The festival includes four days of networking, workshops and films for all ages. While the opening night premiere film and celebrities attending the festival is still a surprise, EIFF founders, Mark Harris and Alisa Inez believe that their “vision” for the festival continues to build each year and more people from the Chicagoland community and the independent film community will want to be active part of making their vision a reality.
Coming back for the second year is the EIFF Career Day. Grammar and High Schools in Englewood are offered an opportunity to have a film industry professional visit their school. Actors, Film Producers, Writers, Set Designers and Make-Up Artists and many more volunteer their day to go into as many classes as possible to speak about their career path in film; whether in front of the camera or behind the scenes. Their “vision” is to encourage youth to see great possibilities for their lives and the importance of education.
Save the date: October 22-25,2015. Early bird tickets are currently on sale on www.eiff.org. With so much to do in preparation for this event we are still looking for community members to be a part of our vision.
