BECAUSE EVERYBODY LOVES MOVIES!
For over half a century, the Chicago International Film Festival has done our part to expand your cinematic horizons with entertaining, provocative, and illuminating selections from around the globe.
This year, our mission remains the same: to bring Chicago the unique opportunity to see world-class cinema. From new discovers to international prizewinners, and hear directly from the talented people who’ve brought them to us. Filmmakers from China to Mexico and Hollywood to our backyard will join us for Chicago’s most thrilling movie event of the year, and we hope you’ll take a chance to see something you never would have experienced otherwise.
Come see what we have discovered for you!
