Chicago International Children’s Film Festival @ Facets
The Chicago International Children’s Film Festival was founded in 1983 to introduce new, thoughtful, provocative, and culturally diverse films for children to American audiences, to recognize excellence in children’s filmmaking, and empower children by involving them directly in the jurying process. The Festival is a rare opportunity for Chicagoans to experience award-winning global films before anyone else and as they should be seen: on the big screen!
