MFHQ MEMO | From Chambana with Love

Thank you for reading our recent posts about Champaign-Urbana film culture. After we run a few more items of a literary bent, we are going to slow it down a bit and primarily report on C-U Confidential, the New Art Film Festival, and unfinished business for the next few months unless something bigly blows up that we need to share with you. Be sure to visit us in person at the Indie Art Convention in Savoy on Sunday, July 14, watch for CUZine #10 to appear in your favorite public reading spot at the beginning of fall semester, and listen for the Call for Entries to sound for NAFF IX. Cheers to you!
