there was an overwhelming turn out in chicago for both the chicago critics film festival (curated by the chicago film critcs association), and the midwest independent film festival.  the music box theater and the landmark century cinema were filled with a packed house and an incredible level of support and encouragement from the chicago community of filmmakers, artists, fans and family.  UPDATE:  ANIMALS wins the chicago critics film festival audience choice award!  for more news about ANIMALS, like and follow the facebook page and website.
