One of the first signs of REAL spring in Champaign-Urbana is the annual Insect Fear Film Festival. Billing itself as a celebration of “horrific films and horrific filmmaking since 1984,” the festival will be held on February 26, 2011 in Foellinger Auditorium (UIUC Campus). As usual, admission will be free and the doors will open at 6 PM. I’m intending to try out the new camera at the insect petting zoo prior to the film.
