Backyard Film & Music Fest returns to Chicago for a 4th Year
Backyard Film & Music Fest was started in 2008 by a few friends who set up a film projector for about 40 people in lawn chairs. Since then the fest has expanded to include music and has featured the likes of Dosh, Light Pollution, Panda Riot, and more.
This year’s event happens on October 1st, starting at 2PM with the film section at the Wicker Park Art Center. The party then moves to the music at the Viaduct Theater; full festival attendees will be able to cram everything in without missing a thing.
The music portion will feature hyped up Pittsburgh/Houson artist Wise Blood along with Judson Claiborne, BBU, and Bhi Bhiman. Though no titles have been released, the late afternoon film portion will have both local and international short films.
Check out the event’s flyer below, and a hilarious promo video.
