September a film festival feast for fans

September is going to be a bonanza month for film festival fans. As of now, seven uniquely different fests are scheduled throughout the state, and others surely will be announced later.

Most of the film events take place during the third week of September, which includes the first day of autumn. Here’s how they line up:

Sept. 10-13: Now under the auspices of the IFP, the 16th annual Chicago Underground Film Festival again will be combined with IFP’s Filmmakers Summit and be held at the Gene Siskel Center.

CUFF will stand alone as a festival “when it moves to a date next April or May,” IFP executive director Ryan Jewell informs. See
