Chicago-based indie filmmaker Mark Harris is set to begin the 3rd annual Englewood International Film Festival next month in the city.
Harris is determined to prove that no one “can overshadow the hope for the future of this Chicago area;” his ultimate goal is to “present a brighter side of the area to the city, media, entertainment industry and the world. The goal of the panels, films, and overall event is this: To change the imaging and condition of the people in Englewood.”
As a result, Harris, along with Honee Earth LLC, will bring back the annual Englewood International Film Festival which is all ready to take place next month Oct. 25-27 with the opening night being the world premiere of Harris’ latest feature film Black Coffee, No Sugar, No Cream along with several other important films, film panels and celebrities.
(Hey what better place to premiere your latest film but at the festival you created? Nothing wrong with that.)
