James will have the first public screening of his new “Indy produced” short film, “BYTE”, and Jon will make the regional premiere of his feature length documentary, “The Death of Superman Lives: What Happened?”.

On Saturday afternoon Mez Murray, a Chicago based producer, writer and director will join Jon in a screen writers’ workshop that offers one to one discussions with aspiring filmmakers regarding the scripts or films they have previously submitted online. This unique feedback session can give guidance to those looking to make it to “the next level”.
