Anarchist Film Fest in Chicago May 25 & 27

The Anarchist Film Festival starts off and closes Matches and Mayhem, May 25-27, a celebration of anarchist culture. Here's the schedule for Friday, 25th, and Sunday 27th.
Last year the Anarchist Film Festival was a
great success. It screened a wide assortment of
inspiring, entertaining, and thoroughly radical
films by and about anarchists. This year's Film
Festival builds on that accomplishment.

The second Anarchist Film Festival will take
place May 25 and 27 in Chicago, along with the
other Matches and Mayhem events: the Anarchist
Bookfair, Variety Show, Debates and Soccer

This year's Festival selects from an even larger
pool of submissions. Two screenings will feature
documentaries, narrative shorts, and a feature
length film.
