Night Light: A Dresden Files Noir Fan Film Screening
Thursday, 8pm — 255E
When some of Chicago’s minor magical talents become the targets of abuse, the police chalk it up to isolated incidents of self-inflicted harm. But Harry Dresden’s not waiting for someone to die. He’s planning a solid pre-emptive strike against whomever or whatever is stalking the city’s most vulnerable practitioners. The screening will be followed by the extended trailer of Tower of Turtles’ Fall 2017 release of RED SUN: an action fan film of The Dresden Files.
Amy Gruss, Suzanne Solomon, Priscilla Spencer
