(Chicago — 7 September 2018) For the fourth consecutive year, Big Teeth Productions is playing host to its 60-second film fest as part of the Ravenswood Art walk.

This year’s festival will feature 13 different films created by Big Teeth employees, freelancers and industry friends who created their films inspired by a famous piece of artwork chosen at random. The films run the gamut from drama to comedy and live action, vfx, animation and stop motion. Each year brings a slew of completely new short films created specifically for this fest.

The festival program will run every 20 minutes from 11am – 6pm at the Big Teeth studio located at 4001 N Ravenswood Ave Unit 301 on September 15th & 16th. Visitors will be served popcorn and complimentary beer provided by Malt Row brewers Empirical and Urban Renewal.

Last year’s festival drew more than 600 viewers who cast their vote for multiple categories including best picture, best cinematography, best male performance, best female performance and best artistic interpretation.

“The Film Festival has become one of our favorite parts of the year,” says Big Teeth Executive Producer and Owner Elise Jaffe. “Being able to show our ties to the film community in Chicago as well as our local neighborhood is pretty amazing. Plus, it gives people a chance to see how much creativity flows through every member of our extended family.”

Co-owner and Creative Director Gregg Jaffe adds, “ I always look forward to seeing how each filmmaker interprets their work of art. It’s a really unique and fun style of filmmaking both for the artists and the audience to witness.”
