56 Films for 56 Years
Given the current recommendation to stay home and practice social distancing, we at the Chicago International Film Festival are looking at ways to continue to highlight important, high quality films while audiences remain unable to visit the movie theater. We are glad to introduce our new 56 Films for 56 Years blog to highlight past selections from each year of the Festival that you can stream now from home. Stream our past selections as we look forward to the 56th Chicago International Film Festival this October 14-25, 2020.
Our first #56Films entry comes recommended by Chicago International Film Festival Marketing Manager Andrew Van Beek.

Moonlight is the tender, heartbreaking story of a young man’s struggle to find himself, told across three defining chapters in his life. A sensual, intoxicating piece of cinema that uncovers deep truths about the moments that define us, the people who shape us most, and the ache of love that can last a lifetime.
