New Festival-inspired short films from Chicago’s filmmaking community and beyond
The 51st Chicago International Film Festival is announcing the 10 original short films that have been newly created to play before every film program during the Festival. Founder & Artistic Director Michael Kutza, Festival Programmers and Staff reached out to a variety of filmmaking teams to make 60-Second short films inspired by the Festival’s tagline: “Because Everybody Loves Movies.”
The first new Festival intro will be shown on Opening Night, before the Special Presentation of Mia Madre. Titled Everyone Loves, the short film was conceived by independent creative director Susan Schmidt with three filmmakers (Herman Asph, Eric Almond, and Will Meyers) from Quriosity Productions, a Chicago-based production house founded by Qadree Holmes.
