Get a double-dip of culture tonight when Illiterate's ongoing Ill Film Series gives up the screen to five emerging artists participating in the gallery's current show, Down with the Sickness Too, which was put together by Rhinoceropolis founder Travis Egedy. Mario Zoots, Zach Reini, Alicia Ordal, Milton Melvin Croissant III and Dimitri Obergfell will discuss what makes them tick, by way of a selection of short films and videos, some they've created themselves and some by other influences. Screening begin at 8 p.m. at Illiterate, 82 S. Broadway; admission is a $5 donation and popcorn and drinks will be available.
