Instead of complaining about the "lack of culture" in Chicago, get off your ass and go see some quality movies.  The Chicago International Film Fest kicks off this Thursday, October 11. The festival is a combo of local, national, and international films that you should go check out. It runs from 10/11 though 10/24 and you can find the full schedule at http://www.chicagofilmfestival.com/

OH YEAH, and follow RedEye on Twitter this week for the chance to win free passes to the Festival!
