This year the Naperville Independent Film Festival has been expanded to two weeks, with North Central College hosting week two. As in past years, many of the films at the college are foreign films, particularly from Paris’ European Independent Film Festival (the ECU), commonly referred to as “Europe’s Sundance Festival.”  But the second week of the festival begins at the college with a replay of the Audience Favorite award-winning film from the festival’s first week held this year at Naperville’s Hollywood Palms.
