(Chicago — 21 May 2018) This September marks the fifth annual Middle Coast Film Festival, but its first in Chicago. The Middle Coast Film Festival (MCFF) is scheduled to run from Thursday, Sept. 21 until Sunday, Sept. 23, 2018 at the newly renovated Davis Theatre in Lincoln Square.

Middle Coast Film Festival (MCFF) screens films in six categories; Narrative Features, Narrative Shorts, Documentary Feature, Documentary Shorts, Episodic and Experimental. Its debut in the Windy City comes after four successful years in Bloomington, Ind. where it welcomed 45 international filmmakers, thousands of attendees and screened over 33 hours of film.

In preparation for the debut at the Davis, the festival unveiled a redesigned website on May 18. Besides offering a new look, the redesign integrates MCFF’s social media outlets for fans and visitors to follow on Instagram, Facebook and Twitter and is optimized for mobile use.

With a goal to unite filmmakers and its audience members, panels and small group interactions are scheduled throughout the three days, including a presentation given by the Los Angeles Women’s Film Collective and Chicago’s Women of the Now on the female filmmaker network and building a successful and connective database.

The deadline for filmmakers to submit to MCFF is Thursday, May 31. Filmmakers have to submit through FilmFreeway. A link to FilmFreeway is available on the home page of MCFF’s website and by clicking here.

Additional news on the event schedule, film and panel announcements and more will be updated at MiddleCoastFest.com and MCFF’s Instagram, Twitter and Facebook accounts.
