2nd annual CFA MEDIA MIXER

June 6, 2013 from 8-11:59pm
MediaMixer2013 500

CFA is throwing its second annual Media Mixer benefit at the most popular watering hole in town – the Hideout!  Hosted by WBEZ’s Alison Cuddy, this party opens with music critic extraordinaire, Peter Margasak spinning the tunes and blasts its way through to the midnight hour with “musician, misfit, culture warrior and bullshitter,” BOBBY CONN & Monica Boubou! But at the heart of this fabulously fun Media Mixer is the PREMIERE of 3 video collaborations made entirely with footage from CFA. Here’s 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

And here’s who we’ve got:

Cauleen Smith AND The Eternals (Sponsorship partner Music Box Films and Music Box Theatre)
Jesse McLean AND Sich Mang (Sponsorship partner BRMC Group)
Alexander Stewart AND Sam Prekop (Sponsorship partner Pentimenti Films)

(more on this year’s artists here)

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

We recommend purchasing your tickets in advance here

Raffle Prizes (tickets for only $5!) include:

(the others prizes are rolling in now…) And remember… you can purchase raffle prizes without being at the event, just give us a shout.

All proceeds from the CFA MEDIA MIXER go to benefit the Chicago Film Archives and their efforts to identify, preserve and provide access to the Midwest’s audio-visual heritage. CFA MEDIA MIXER gives CFA fans a chance to support the efforts of both CFA and local artists at the same time!
