Indiefest, Film Festival & Market, is pleased to announce their 2005 call for entries. Indiefest celebrates the "vision without compromise" spirit of the independent filmmaker. Incorporating a competitive film festival, a screenwriting contest, an independent film and script market, and a ten day party, Indiefest brings the world's film community to the beautiful city of Chicago. Indiefest 2005 is scheduled to take place July 29th though August 7th.
Indiefest 2005 will showcase the best of independent film to the general public, filmmakers, the media, and to distribution executives. With more films, events, seminars, parties, and the increasing support of major corporations, the media, and the independent film community, Indiefest 2005 will be the "must attend" festival of the year.
