CFA is throwing a media mixer benefit at the most popular watering hole in town – the Hideout! We are mixing CFA’s footage with 3 Chicago experimental filmmakers with 3 Chicago audio artists! Here is the formula:

CFA footage x 3 filmmakers x 3 audio artists
Shake them up
Throw 3 magical sight and sound creations up on the screen

Here is who we’ve got:

Kent Lambert AND Cave
Jessica Bardsley AND Tim Kinsella
Ellen Castleberry & Andy Resek AND Josh Abrams

There will be plenty of music, dance and great prizes!!

8:00-9:30: DJ Joe Wroblewski (the skinny blond guy from Hyde Park Records)
9:30-10:30: Video projections and 3 raffle drawings (final raffle drawing at 11pm!)
10:30-whenever: DJs OGEMON (DJ duo Ogechi and Monica serenade you into the night with whimsical beats)
