My Very Own Chicago International Film Festival 2016 Watchlist

This year, I had the means to go all out, take a day off work, and buy a ton of tickets. At this writing I have one more left to see. I'm so glad that I got a chance to do this, I would live at film festivals if I could [get hired as a professional film critic]. This list includes two shorts programs and 11 feature length films.

Films not yet on Letterboxd:
Among the Black Waves (Anna Budanova)
Balloonfest (Nathan Truesdell)
Fox and the Whale (Robin Joseph)
Home of the Brave (Gustav Hugosson, Andreas Nilsson)
Moriom (Francesca Scalisi, Mark Olexa)
