University Park, IL  Tickets are now available for Governors State University’s Chicago Southland International Film Festival (CSIFF). Festival goers will enjoy dozens of short and feature films from across the globe during the third annual event, scheduled for Oct. 19 - 25. Filmmakers will be available for live and pre-recorded discussions during the virtual event.

Festival Co-founders Suzanne E. Patterson and Joshua E. Young hand-selected three promising feature films to be screened during the highly anticipated festival.


The mind-bending thriller “Repossession” will be shown on Friday, Oct. 23.

This drama was co-directed by Goh Ming Siu, a Northwestern University graduate from Singapore, and Scott C. Hillyard. The film documents the journey of a middle-aged Singapore man who loses his job in a status-conscious society.





Seasons of Change

On Saturday and Sunday, the works of Chicago-based directors will be featured. “Seasons of Change on Henry’s Farm” by Ines Sommer will be screened on Saturday, Oct. 24. In the film, Sommer shows the awakening of a Midwestern farmer as he bears witness to changing climate, ideals and technology.






Mustang Saviors

On Sunday, Oct. 25, “Mustang Saviors” —a story of mutual healing between wild horses and veterans by David Glossberg —will be shown.
