We are pleased to announce that we are now on the lookout for films for the second-annual Barrington Short Film Festival, premiering local films at the Catlow on May 19th, 2018. Stay tuned for a lot of exciting announcements, but for now, get your films ready to hit the big screen and possibly win some top prizes!

Formerly a staple of the fall/winter months, the Catlow Local Shorts Film Festival has moved – to a new season and a new name!

We are pleased to announce the Barrington-Area Film Festival, premiering local films at the Catlow on May 20th, 2017. It’s the same great festival we all know and love, but now with some new additions, such as awards and top prizes!

3rd Annual Catlow Fest

Hello all,

As you may have noticed, there hasn’t been much news about a 2016 Catlow Local Shorts Fest recently. For a number of reasons the 3rd annual festival will be moving to the spring.

So keep making short films, and look for some more info come January as to how to participate!

Encore Screening!

Back in November we had a great selection of films screened for the Catlow Local Shorts Festival. It was great. There was, by all accounts, a bilzzard. So since the weather outside was indeed frightful, but the films were just so delightful, we thought we’d take one more opportunity to screen this lineup for your viewing pleasure.

On Saturday January 30th, we’ll be again screening these 12 wonderful short films at the Catlow Theater in Barrington, IL.

The show starts at noon, and the doors open at 11:00 AM. Tickets are just $5.

If you came for the initial event, thank you. Come again and bring your friends!

Come on and support your local filmmakers!
