Each year, our Chicago International Children's Film Festival presents the best, most innovative film and educational experiences for kids, families, students, and industry professionals.

Giving filmmakers, families, educators, and media professionals access to the newest and most innovative children’s films, our Festival continues to use the power of film to offer a unique look into the lives and cultures of people around the world.

After three decades, the core of our ethos remains this understanding that the best children’s films are made for, and not about, children. Since the first Festival in 1983, we have successfully created a home for smart, valueaffirming children’s films from all over the world.

While much has changed over the past 30 years, we
have retained and expanded our commitment to provide excellent film programming and educational experiences.
