Travelers of time and space are hereby called upon to congregate in singularity for an evening of film and music celebrating all things sci-fi! The roll of our 20-sided dice is instructing you to teleport to The Hideout for the Martian funk of Bobby Conn, the multidimensional multimedia of Byzantine Time Machine, the Dr. Who inspired pop of Time Crash and an original CIMMfest exclusive Sci-Fi short from Univore. Univore, the absurdly creative media production duo of David Bachmann and Nicholas Flandro, are responsible for the viral “Champagne Taste” video and other absurdist original music, video, and written masterpieces composed on Chicago’s West Side. CIMMfest is ecstatic to premiere an original short film by the mysterious artists for the second straight year. This year we have “Specimen 318” about a fungal botanist who's been sent by the Celestial Medicine Corporation to a distant star system to find spore proteins capable of reigniting human procreation in the wake of an enormous environmental catastrophe.
