Published: March 13, 2020  |  Filed under: Festival News

Dear Chicago International Film Festival Community,

The health and safety of our patrons and staff is our highest priority. Following the lead of Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot and Illinois Governor J.B. Pritzker, who have strongly recommended the cancellation or postponement of gatherings of 250 or more people due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we have made the decision to cancel our upcoming screening of The Truth this Sunday March 15.

We will be issuing full refunds for all tickets purchased for this event. If you are a ticket holder, you will be contacted by email and can expect a refund within the coming three business days.

We will keep you updated with any information about upcoming Cinema/Chicago events as we continue to prioritize the health of our community. We regret any inconvenience this may have caused and thank you for your understanding. Please check our website and social media for updates on upcoming events. Do not hesitate to reach out with any questions about this cancellation at
