International Connections Committee

International Connections Committee

The International Connections Program was created in 2003 to raise awareness of international cinema within the various ethnic communities throughout Chicago.

The International Connections Committee is comprised of dedicated members of various consulates and cultural organizations throughout Chicago, whose purpose is to spotlight Chicago’s diversity and international film community, as well as support Cinema/Chicago’s mission of fostering cultural communication through the cinematic arts. The objective of this Committee is to engage a diverse audience to innovative world cinema and to work in partnership with the Chicago international community for more collaborative programming throughout the year.

One of the highlight events presented by the International Connections committee is the annual International Screenings Program, a free public film series held weekly at the Chicago Cultural Center. Each film is carefully selected to ensure they are of the caliber of film shown at the Chicago International Film Festival.
