3rd Annual Englewood Film Festival Looking For Submissions


We have, a few times before, profiled Chicago-based indie

filmmaker Mark Harris, on his

films and his efforts to establish the Englewood

International Film Festival in his


You don’t have to live in Chicago to know that the Englewood

neighborhood doesn’t have the greatest

reputation. But Harris, who was born and still lives the area, says that the

public is getting just a small part of the story.

He’s determined to prove that no one “can overshadow

the hope for the future of this Chicago area.” And that 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, is getting ready to start up the 3rd annual Englewood

international Film Festival which has previuosly shown films from the US, UK, and Africa

and they are currently soliciting submissions for this year’s festival.
