With “Ebertfest” XI and the C-U Confidential Local Movie Show in the books, that must mean the next exciting film exhibition is right around the corner! Tomorrow, grab your beer and pizza money (although the U. would rather you consider it just pizza money) and head on down to The Canopy Club, 708 S. Goodwin Ave., Urbana, IL, for Illini Film & Video‘s annual end-of-the-school-year festival! The free event is scheduled for 5 to 7 p.m. and will serve as lead-in for the evening’s “Pizza + Pitcher and Movie” presentation. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first IFV showcase to take place off the University of Illinois campus, so we’ll see how much farther incoming president Andrew Stengele and vice-president Andrew Nygard push the geographical boundaries at this time next year.
Elsewhere, you will soon notice that most of our upcoming posting (save the HOOPESTON article) will be shorties designed to help us get back on track and keep it current. If interested in helping this here cause, feel free to hit up your humble editor at cuconfidential [at] gmail [dot] com and ask what you can do for C-U Blogfidential!
