Originally presented in February as the 2020 season opener program, there are 10 films available to view that touch on a wide variety of topics, all with one goal – to make you laugh!
Erica Duffy, Executive Director of Midwest Film Festival, hopes to spread some joy and create unity among the members and supporters of the fest. “Currently, our events are ‘on hold’ so we’ve decided to present our very first online program. The comedy shorts are highly entertaining, and we invite everyone watch and experience what MFF is all about, be a part of it.”
Although the way forward for movie theaters is uncertain, MFF is hopeful their June event ‘Union & Indie Passion Projects,’ can take place at the Gene Siskel Film Center as planned. Female Filmmakers night was cancelled in April will likely be rescheduled.

Like many organizations throughout Chicago, Midwest Film Festival plays an important part in the creative community, and is faced with the challenge to stay financially strong. In tandem with the release of new online content, MFF is launching a Facebook fundraiser for #GivingTuesday, and it’s an ideal way to show appreciation for the online programming. Any donation will make a difference and help ensure the future of the MFF. (Donations are not required to view the online content.)
