About this Article

When Fremd High School grad Michael Noens founded the Blue Whiskey Independent Film Festival four years ago, his mission was to present the Chicago area with riveting and creative independent films from across the globe with one thing in common: a strong, powerful story. Film enthusiasts are getting just that, screening more than 30 shorts and feature-length films at Palatine's Cutting Hall Performing Arts Center.
