About Tom McNicholas 

alt

Tom McNicholas has been called the biggest supporter of independent film and entertainment in Northern Illinois.  For years he has supported the efforts of several area film companies including John Wesley Norton's Boomstick Films and Willy Adkins's Breaking Fate Entertainment.  His efforts and support have earned him more than 35 IMDb credits and the respect of his peers.

Tom has also been highly involved in film festival production during his time with Breaking Fate Entertainment.  Currently BFE is downsizing it's film festival department and moving it's operations to East Tennessee.  This move has left several Northern Illinois area film festivals needing a dedicated individual to step in and take over, thus the birth of Northern Illinois Entertainment under the direction of Tom McNicholas.  Northern Illinois Entertainment will begin producing The Prairie State Film Festival, The Spook Show Con and The Horror Avenue Film Festival in 2019.

Submissions are open for Film Fests

In addition to film and film festival production, Tom also has a great interest in the paranormal.  For this reason, Tom also founded Northern Illinois Paranormal Association (N.I.P.A.), a name used to host / conduct paranormal investigations.  In celebration of all things paranormal, Tom also has plans to produce a brand to paranormal convention called Northern Illinois Paracon in Fall 2019.
