CHICAGO, Illinois—October 2, 2017— Twisted Oyster Film Festival (TOFF) will take place October 14 – November 10, 2017 and this year’s theme is the “Power of the Feminine.”
Twisted Oyster Film Festival leads the way in search of works that push the boundaries of content and narrative with a mission to bridge culture, society and technology. For 2017, we seek to highlight women creators, directors and artists from all over the world, whose works are meaningful, innovative and go in tandem with our times.
Annually, the Festival opens with a Video Art Exhibition and this year is no exception. We are expanding it’s format to include installations with a time-based component, web and virtual reality art works too. The art show opening will take place at 33 Contemporary/Art NXT Level Gallery in the recognized Zhou Brothers Art Center in Chicago, and the exhibition will run from October 20th – November 10th, 2017. The film screenings will premier at Comfort Station Logan Square on October 14th with a programming running through October 22nd, 2017.
We are excited to announce that this year’s event introduces a new award to its competition for its 3rd season, the Audience Award, which will be given in five categories, Best in Show, Documentary, Experimental, Fiction and Animation.
