Want to Meet the Filmmakers?

Here's who is scheduled to attend the festival:

While watching great films is the main activity of the Naperville Indpendent Film Festival, talking with the people who were involved in those films can be one of the best parts of the fest -- particularly for students and other beginning filmmakers. 

Here is a list of the people who have indicated that they will be in attendance at the festival and the days they plan to attend. Please be aware that weather and other issues can change plans at a moment's notice. We'll try to keep you as updated as possible.

Film guests will be availble for questions and/or meet 'n' greet in the lobby of Hollywood Palms Cinema. Look for the NIFF "photo op" backdrop and information table.
