Chicago International Children's Film Festival: November 1-10

October 26, 2019 3:02 PM | Anonymous member (Administrator)

Excerpt from the 36th Annual Chicago International Children's Film Festival web site.

The Chicago International Children’s Film Festival aims to set an internationally-recognized standard of excellence in film for children and youth.

We strive to support the work of talented and dedicated filmmakers by showcasing international films of the highest quality and awarding prizes in multiple categories of production formats and genres. The film experiences of young viewers are deepened through a broad range of programs which extend Festival film viewing into discussion and learning.

The Festival is the oldest children’s film festival in the Western Hemisphere and is the largest and first Oscar-qualifying children’s film festival in the world.

The 36th annual Festival runs from November 1—November 10, 2019 at multiple Chicago-area venues and presents on average 250 new films from 40 countries along with workshops, director presentations, and seminars.

The Festival is presented by Facets, a nonprofit that connects people to independent ideas through transformative film experiences.
