dead-snow-red-vs-dead-1
After a wildly successful launch last year, the Chicago Critics Film Festival is pleased to announce the first wave of titles that will be screening as part of this year’s event. The first film festival to be created and curated entirely by film critics, this year’s lineup will include the latest films from acclaimed directors such as Michel Gondry and Ari Folman and stars like Audrey Tautou, Robin Wright, Hugo Weaving, Jenny Slate and Romain Duris, all of which will be making their local premieres. The festival will run May 9-15, 2014 and will be held this year at Chicago’s historic Music Box Theatre. Passes will be available for purchase soon.

Created by the Chicago Film Critics Association in 2013, the festival offers a selection of films comprised of recent festival favorites and as-yet-undistributed works from a wide variety of filmmakers ranging from award winners to talented newcomers chosen by members of the organization, the only current example of a major film critics group hosting its own festival. The seven titles announced today come from around the globe and offer viewers an eclectic blend of films including raunchy comedy, introspective dram and mind-blowing fantasy.

    Dead Snow 2 looks better than the first one. I’m a sucker for bigfoot movies, so I am eagerly waiting for Willow Creek.
