Every year the Entomology Department at the University of Illinois hosts the “Insect Fear Film Festival“. Centering on movies with scary creepy crawlies, Dr. May Berenbaum (her name isn’t Bambi) created the festival in 1984. Over the years, the festival has grown, and this year they have a very special theme: The X-Files.
“The InsX-Files: The Truth (About Insects) Is Out There” will be showing “War of the Coprophages” followed by Fight the Future. After each showing, the one and only Chris Carter will be doing Q&As. Admission is free, so if you’re in the area, be sure to head on down. The festival will be held at the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign in Foellinger Auditorium on Saturday, February 23rd.
For more updates, follow the IFFF on Facebook, and make sure you check out this years’ cool X-Files themed shirts. We’ll hopefully be bringing you some live tweeting from the Q&As, so also make sure that you follow us on Twitter @XFilesNews.
