DePaul graduate and teacher-turned-filmmaker Carmen Marron (COM ’94) is in Chicago this month for the Chicago International Film Festival, where her new movie “Go For It!” is showing as an official selection. The film, based partially on Marron’s experience growing up in Chicago’s inner city and her work as a guidance counselor for at-risk youth, has been selected for the Boston International Film Festival, Dances With Films Festival, and the HBO Presents New York International Latino Film Festival. The coming-of-age story follows Carmen, a good student and talented street dancer in the underground Chicago club scene.
Starting this weekend, you can catch “Go For It” along with writer/director/producer Carmen Marron and cast members at the Chicago International Film Festival. For show times, locations and ticket info, visit chicagofilmfestival.com.
