2017 International Screenings Program: A Taste of Cinema

Cinema/Chicago, together with the City of Chicago Department of Cultural Affairs and Special Events and our consular and cultural partners, presents the 14th annual International Screenings Program, a free weekly film series that celebrates the richness and diversity of international and independent filmmaking.

Food and film bring people together, whether around a candlelit table or bbq pit or into a dark theater. This year, with “A Taste of Cinema” we are offering a smorgasbord of films showcasing culinary traditions from around the world. Whether it is a grilled-meat documentaries or a rom-com showcasing quirky celebrity chefs, you will leave the theater hungry for more. Discussions with filmmakers, cultural leaders, and film critics will be held after select screenings.

Please arrive early as seating is on a first-come, first-served basis and is limited to theater capacity.
Films are unrated. Viewer discretion is advised.
