The Juggernaut Film Festival: A Night of Science Fiction and Fantasy Short Films

February 1, 2014 @ 7:30 pm - 10:30 pm

| $10

Chicago Filmmakers teams up with Otherworld Theatre Company to co-present the 2nd Annual Juggernaut Film Festival, an international showcase of Science Fiction and Fantasy short films. These films push the boundaries of the genre and translate onto the screen dreams beyond your wildest imagination. Some of the films have received international attention – works such as The Maker directed by Christopher Kezelos has won over 20 film festival awards – while others will be screened publicly for the very first time. The festival, initially inspired by Ray Bradbury, seeks to inspire the science fiction believer in us all. “You ever see those juggernaut films? The big icons? They roll through the streets, all different colors, and the wheels, Jesus, 5 feet round, like circular rainbows, with legs and feet and big mascara eyes.” – Ray Bradbury, “Juggernaut”
