City of Evanston will be hosting the first annual i2F2 – Next Generation Festival.
Evanston is an educational and cultural hub 12 miles from downtown Chicago. Unparalleled connectivity, urban sophistication, natural serenity and entrepreneurial spirit come together in Evanston. Home to top ranking Northwestern University, a strong business community, thriving urban downtown, picture perfect neighborhoods and exceptional talent all make Evanston a truly livable city with something for everyone. An honor that Forbes magazine’s “America’s Top 25 Towns to Live” agrees with.
Supported by mayor, Elizabeth Tisdahl, i2F2 is the first film festival of its kind anywhere in the world that highlights films made by first-time feature filmmakers and student filmmakers. For its first edition, the Festival will focus on films from and by filmmakers from three key regions: South Asia, Middle East (including Turkey and Iran) and Israel. The inaugural 2014 Film Festival will take place between May 29 – June 05 in the vibrant burgeoning arts & cultural hub of Downtown Evanston.
