Indiefest, The Independent Film Festival, continues its 2007 call for entries. Indiefest 
celebrates the "vision without compromise" spirit of the independent filmmaker. 
Incorporating a competitive film festival, a screenwriting contest, and a weeklong party, 
Indiefest brings the world's film community to the beautiful city of Chicago. Indiefest 2007 
is scheduled to take place July 26th though August 2nd.

Indiefest 2007 will showcase the best of independent film to the general public, 
filmmakers, and the media. With more films, events, parties, and the increasing support 
of major corporations, the media, and the independent film community, Indiefest 2007 
will be the "must attend" independent film festival of the year.

Indiefest is eager to showcase emerging talent; therefore there are no strict eligibility 
requirements. There is one major requirement: films financed or produced by major 
studios or their affiliates are not eligible. Films and videos of all lengths and genres will 
be accepted. Screenplays, scripts, novels, and short stories will be accepted into the 
writing competition, which is presented by the renowned Screenwriter’s Project. 

Don’t miss the Late Deadline: April 1, 2007. Additional information and application forms 
can be obtained at,, or send a SASE to 
Indiefest, PO Box 148849, Chicago, IL 60614-8849.

Indiefest 2007 also announces the return of the Production Fund Prize Package valued at 
$300,000+. The recipient of the 2007 Indiefest Vision Award will receive the prize 
package of in-kind goods and services. The intention of this fund is to provide the 
filmmaker with as much equipment and production services as possible to make a feature 
film. The Indiefest Vision Award is presented to the filmmaker whose film epitomizes the 
“Vision Without CompromiseTM” spirit of the independent filmmaker.

Indiefest welcomes its newest member, Cynthia Castillo-Hill as the new Executive 
Director.  Cynthia Castillo-Hill, Executive Producer at Village, joins the Indiefest Staff to
