Festivals in Chicago are good and plenty but not many are as unique and eye opening as the Chicago International Movies and Music Festival, returning for its sixth year May 1-4. CIMMfest brings music and film makers from across the globe together to illustrate the two mediums' inseparable ties throughout history. It brings four days of concerts, screenings, panel discussions and interviews to Chicago's Logan Square and Wicker Park neighborhoods--99 events in 96 hours to be exact!
