First Tuesdays with the Midwest Independent Film Festival:

World Premiere of FULL FRAME
Director Christopher Kelley in attendance

Chicago, IL The eleventh annual First Tuesdays with The Midwest Independent Film Festival will host the World Premiere of Illinois indie FULL FRAME on Tuesday, August 4th at Landmark's Century Centre Cinema.  This taut, neo-noir throwback to the classic thrillers of the 1940s features exceptional storytelling from director Christopher Kelley, gorgeous cinematography and a talented ensemble cast, highlighted by newcomers Charles Whitcomb, Frankie Murphy-Giesing and Jeff Baird.  Director/writer Christopher Kelley and producer Victoria Kelley will be in attendance for a post-screening discussion with the audience.


Film Synopsis: Smoke from a fiery portrait and a voice: 'Photographs don't tell true stories, anymore.' So begins this taut, neo-noir throwback to the classic thrillers of the 1940s, where a spineless, busybody photographer finds himself trapped in a web of blackmail, bad guys, beautiful women, and murder.
