The Chicago Anarchist Film Festival is the country's longest-lived annual anarchist cinematic event, and turns LuckyThirteen this year. Every year CAFF showcases features, shorts, documentaries, and animations to anarchists, anti-authoritarians, the anarcho-friendly and the anarcho-curious. The Fest kicks off on April 26, 2013 at Meztli Gallery, 2005 South Blue Island, Pilsen.
This year's line up is split into three themes- Friday, April 26th is Sabotage (by the state and as direct action) with feature films Cointelpro 101 and Just Do It- A Tale of Modern Day Outlaws, plus a discussion on movement building and destruction led by Four Star Anarchist Organization.
On Saturday 27this Wild Cat Strikes Again, with feature film Greening the Revolution that focuses on global food injustice by documenting stories of post “free trade” community casualties, and victories from bottom-up community resistance.
Finally, Sunday, April 28th is Nine Lives- The Future Is Still Unwritten where we feature Ghosts With Shit Jobs, a sci-fi, comedy adventure of the job market after the first world turns into the third. All the way from Canada, film maker Jim Munroe will be present for a Q & A.
Sunday night culminates with Punk Rock Karaoke, a benefit for the Chicago Anarchist Film Festival at Township 2200 N. California Ave. with some beer support coming from Revolution Brew. Punk Rock Karaoke Chicago is a Do-It-Yourself event that brings one of a kind punk rock songs for you to sing or scream a long to. The event runs from 8pm to midnight.
