IFV begins with bang-bang-bang!

Illini Film & Video meets at least once a week during the academic year at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign to allow interested members of the student body to learn about and get involved in film-making projects, fund-raising events, and volunteer or paid opportunities outside of IFV. Information, networking tools, and streaming video of past projects can be found at their Web site.

The next meeting will take place tonight, Monday, September 14, 6:30 p.m., in Room 104 of the UIUC English Building, 608 S. Wright St., Champaign, IL. Topics to be discussed include:

• A preview screening, right after the meeting in 104, of Michael Bach’s long-in-the-making spoof WHO KILLED PAC MAN?, wherein a noir private eye (not unlike the one Bach portrayed on the cover of last year’s C-U Confidential) attempts to solve a murder in a city filled with shifty videogame types;
• An encore screening on Wednesday, September 15, 7 p.m., of former IFV vice president and UIUC alumna Anne Lukeman’s thesis project, THROUGH THE LENS OF HISTORY, which will take place in Room 314 of Altgeld Hall on the UIUC campus;
• Production of current IFV VP Andrew Nygard’s new “Midwestern,” THE BALLAD OF DIRTY DON, this coming weekend on Saturday, September 19, and Sunday, September 20.

During this academic year, C-U Blogfidential plans to cover IFV more closely than usual, leading up to the group’s 10th anniversary during the spring 2010 semester. Keep an eye right here for developments on that front as well as all the Illini Film & Video craziness you can handle!

Contact Nygard at anygard2 [at] uiuc [dot] edu or IFV president Andrew Stengele at astenge2 [at] uiuc [dot] edu with questions.
