About McHenry Fall Film Festival

New this year, the McHenry Fall Film Festival is proudly produced by the McHenry Area Chamber of Commerce.  The goal of this event is to promote the McHenry area as a film-friendly community as well as support and show off our local businesses.

We are excited to provide a platform for both emerging and seasoned filmmakers to share their work.  Directors (both youth and adult) can have their short films screened and possibly win prizes.  We will kick off the event on Thursday night screening films from students 8th grade and younger.  Friday night will feature high school filmmakers and a Q and A from experts who are working in the industry.  Saturday night, we will premiere our films from our amateur/professional adult category. Filmmakers will compete to see who can make the best short film in only 48 hours.
