19th Annual Black Harvest Film Festival

August 22, 2013 @ 8:30 pm - 10:30 pm


The harvest of new talent is bountiful, as seen in an exciting array of narrative features, documentaries, and attention-grabbing short films. Be sure to check back for ongoing updates on appearances and special events, as many filmmakers will be present for audience discussion. All films are eligible for your vote for the Black Harvest Audience Award; ballots available in our gallery/café.

New films by Chicago independent filmmakers are always a special feature of the festival, and this year they include: FOR THE CAUSE, a legal drama by Katherine Nero; THE MAN IN THE SILO, a thriller by Phil Donlon, featuring star Ernie Hudson in person for Q&A on Friday, August 9; MOUND BAYOU: JEWEL OF THE DELTA, an engaging documentary by Jon Ross and John H. Rogers III; and more.
