4th annual CFA MEDIA MIXER

Thursday, June 18, 2015 ,  8PM-12AM

1354 West Wabansia Avenue
Chicago, IL , go to map

Admissions: $15 (21+)



CFA’s annual video remix benefit returns with an impressive lineup of video premieres, DJs and raffle prizes. At the heart of this fabulously fun event is the world premiere of 3 video collaborations made entirely with footage from CFA.

The way this works: CFA asks three artists to make a short video piece using footage from CFA’s collections and then to turn that piece over to a sound artist/musician who records a score specifically for the piece.  In other words:

This year’s talented line-up includes (filmmakers listed first):

Amir George + The O’Mys
Jesse Malmed + ONO
Fern Silva + Phil Cohran

(more on this year’s artist lineup here)

The evening will be hosted by Alison Cuddy (Chicago Humanities Festival) with sounds from DJ Naomi Walker


AND so many great raffle and silent auction prizes in store! Raffle tickets will be sold before and during the event and awarded the night of the Media Mixer (you don’t have to be there to win!). Silent Auction entries will only be available at the event. And be forewarned: auction entries close at 10:30PM!
