Eyelydian was an Official Selection in the BLOW-UP International Arthouse Filmfest in Chicago, IL.

The BLOW-UP ARTHOUSE FILM FESTIVAL The festival links the most creative artists together with very intelligent audiences for its annual festival of narrative, musical and documentary films, shorts, animations, experimental films, and student work. The festival was named after the Michelangelo Antonioni’s iconic film “Blow-Up” (1966).

We believe that a story driven by a genuine expression can stimulate new thoughts that have the power to promote the fundamental principles of humanism, expand creative frontiers, stimulate new levels of compassion, and even lead to social change. The Festival welcomes serious, independent films aimed at a specific audience rather than a mass-market consumer. We would like to see films made primarily for aesthetic and philosophical reasons rather than commercial profit. The festival would like to approach the caliber of films made by such great directors as Eisenstein, Antonioni, Fellini, Tarkovsky, Godard, Truffaut, Pasolini, Kurosawa, Buñuel, Norshteyn.

The BLOW-UP FILM Festival is an organization devoted to the discovery and of arthouse filmmakers and audiences. The Festival pursues goals to support, and inspire film and theatre artists from the United States and around the world, and to introduce audiences to their new creation. We also support established Arthouse filmmakers who already attained a major contribution to the art of filmmaking.
