We are now accepting submissions for the 35th annual Chicago International Children's Film Festival, running November 1 - 9, 2018.
Who we are
Our Festival presents the best, most innovative international films for kids and teens. We seek out films that both entertain audiences and challenge them to widen their perspectives. But more importantly, we seek out films that are made for kids, not simply about them.
