Please consider joining our community of patrons who share our love of cinema and look to film to move, entertain and inspire our global community. Your support plays an invaluable role in our non-profit organization - the Festival and our year-round programs, including our free Summer Screenings Program, CineYouth Festival, and Education Programs could not exist without it!
Cinema/Chicago, the presenting organization of the Chicago International Film Festival, is a year-round non-profit cultural and educational organization dedicated to fostering better communication between people of diverse cultures through the art of film and the moving image. We serve Chicago’s diverse and under-served citizenry by providing access to world-class cinema. We aim to enrich Chicago’s cultural environment by presenting film in contexts that encourage discussion and debate.
