Behold the itinerary for the 2016 NAFF!

Posted by By at 10 October, at 09 : 57 AM Print


Avid supporters of the indie cinema of Champaign, Urbana, and the cities beyond, hear us now! As we move through the preparation throes of all things New Art Film Festival, please have a little more patience as we finalize the fully-detailed schedule for release in the next two-to-three days. We will write you again once they have been posted to this site, Facebook, and the like!

That said, we have alerted filmmakers of our choices so we can reveal a “basic” schedule just for you! Pay mind to the odd start times for the blocks; we’re working with a smaller window than usual at our beloved Art Theater Co-op in downtown Champaign, Illinois, so we’ve done the best we could to maximize our residence on Sunday, October 30, 6-11 p.m.

The NAFF could not fit in a number of unique and enticing pieces this year due to the time constraints and other factors, but we hope their creators will still join us in experiencing locally-made storytelling through full-motion media. Let us celebrate that which all of you do!

People of the press are free to contact to set up opportunities for covering the seventh annual NAFF, while people of our world should watch for a handful more reveals between now and then.

Cheers to you! And now, the films…
