Because Everybody Loves Movies

50 Years!

Since 1965, the Chicago International Film Festival has brought you thousands of groundbreaking, highly acclaimed and thought-provoking films from around the globe.

In 2014, our mission remains the same: to bring Chicago the unique opportunity to see world-class cinema, from new discoveries to international prizewinners, and hear directly from the talented people who’ve brought them to us. This year is no different, with filmmakers from Scandinavia to Mexico and Hollywood to our backyard, joining us for what is Chicago’s most thrilling movie event of the year. To all of our guests, past, present and future—we thank you for continued support, excitement, and most importantly, your love for movies!

Happy Anniversary to us!

Michael Kutza, Founder and Artistic Director
