About Chicago International Children’s Film Festival
Founded in 1984, the CICFF is the oldest children’s film festival in North America. The festival serves as a global hub for filmmakers and producers of films for children, with a peer forum for over 100 filmmakers with an opportunity to connect with and elevate the aesthetic and production standards for youth cinema production.
Festival films reach unique audiences, diverse in age, socioeconomic background, and ethnic heritage – a broad range of children and teens, educators, parents, and peers unduplicated in the youth film festival audience landscape world-wide. At post-screening discussions, panels, workshops, seminars and receptions, filmmakers have an incomparable opportunity to connect with the widest possible array of viewers and colleagues.
