Winner of the Audience Award at the 2015 Chicago Underground Film Festival, Jim Vendiola is a budding Chicago filmmaker whose unconventional style has garnered strong critical notice both locally and internationally. This screening will include two of Vendiola’s recent films, accompanied by a selection of shorts by local influencers and collaborators. DRIFT (2010, 33 min., digital) was on view at the Festival de Cannes 2011 Court Métrage and was a big hit on the festival circuit. Vendiola describes the film thusly, "Boy places ad. Girl responds to ad. Two twenty-something strangers decide to ditch work on the very same Tuesday, wondering where exactly a winter's day together might take them." HEARTBEAT (2013, 5 min., digital), which Vendiola has dubbed a "lovesick little foot-stomper," is a rowdy and rousing music video for Ontario-based band, The Sleepovers. Filmmaker Jim Vendiola and collaborators will be in attendance for Q&A!
