Daily Calendar: Artists + film at Illiterate

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.

KEEP WESTWORD FREE... Since we started Westword, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Denver, and we'd like to keep it that way. With local media under siege, it's more important than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" program, allowing us to keep offering readers access to our incisive coverage of local news, food and culture with no paywalls.
Susan Froyd started writing for Westword as the "Thrills" editor in 1992 and never quite left the fold. These days she still freelances for the paper in addition to walking her dogs, enjoying cheap ethnic food and reading voraciously. Sometimes she writes poetry.
