Kids at theater

Join us as we explore new cultures and traditions with exceptional films and quality media. Take an amazing journey with a wealth of character-driven stories, painterly and cutting-edge animation, and films that broaden the minds of children of all ages.

As the first Oscar-qualifying children's film festival in the country, the CICFF represents a rare opportunity for Chicagoans to see top award-winning films before anyone else.

The CICFF gives children the chance to see some of the best new films from around the world as they should be seen: on the big screen.
