The 23rd Annual CUFF runs from June 1st through June 5th, 2016, and has a full program of feature films, shorts, documentaries and off-the-grid entertainment not found anywhere else. Each night will feature an event, party or concert associated with the programming, and CUFF reigns as one of the most anticipated cross-events to kick off the summer. As Roger Ebert once wrote, “What you get for your money is not just admission to the films, but admission to a subculture.”

Opening Night for the 23rd annual Chicago Underground Film Festival is June 1st, 2016, with “Tony Conrad: Completely in the Present” – at the Logan Theatre, 2646 North Milwaukee Avenue, Chicago – with an after party to follow.

Male version of a “bimbo”) energy.
