Now in its fifth year, our 2013 Short Story Showcase highlights three independent Chicago films that marvelously explore what happens when introverted individuals come face-to-face with their biggest fears. The humorous and often heart-warming results of these characters mingling with society will leave you inspired to learn some new lessons of your own. Directors will be in attendance to discuss their work. Total run time: 60 minutes
