The Blue Whiskey Film Festival is returning to Palatine. The event kicks-off on Tuesday, July 19th with a free performance by Dennis Florine as he begins his “Beautiful Tragedy” tour this summer. On Wednesday evening, the short and feature-length film selection screenings begin and continue through Saturday night. The festival closes with an Awards Brunch at the Hotel Indigo of Palatine on Sunday, July 24th.

The mission of the Blue Whiskey Independent Film Festival (BWiFF) is to present the greater Chicagoland area with riveting and creative independent films from all around the world that have one thing in common: a strong, powerful story. Many festivals focus on either the technical side of filmmaking or a film’s use of “star power.” While films at BWiFF may have celebrities in them, they will not be selected or screened because of the celebrity’s involvement. Creative story structures built in a solid foundation are the utmost important element to BWiFF programmers.

In the long-term, BWiFF will strive to build a reputation for exhibiting rare and compelling independent films. Te festival’s first Best of Fest winner, The Scenesters (directed by Todd Berger, produced by Kevin Brennan, Jeff Grace and Brett D. Thompson) is a prime example of the festival’s hunger for great storytelling. The award-winning feature film is a very creative cross between a narrative film and a mockumentary.
