THE INTERNATIONAL LATINO CULTURAL CENTER PRESENTS THE 27th CHICAGO LATINO FILM FESTIVAL, FEATURING OVER 100 FILMS FROM LATIN AMERICA, SPAIN AND USA

The festival runs April 1-14, with special events Opening Night, Brazilian Night and Closing Night Galas

CLFF features over 100 films from Latin America, Spain and the United States.  CLFF aims to promote Latino arts and culture by emphasizing films that portray examples of the vast diversity in Latin America and that challenge Latino stereotypes. During the majority of screenings, the audience will have the opportunity to participate in discussions with local and visiting filmmakers.

In an effort to highlight the importance of the artistic and educational value of all films, CLFF is noncompetitive with the exception of the coveted Audience Choice Award, as determined by the filmgoers and the Gloria Achievement Award.  Since 1999, the Gloria Award has been given as a special recognition to individuals and institutions for their outstanding contributions to the Latino arts.

SPECIAL SEGMENTS

As is tradition, CLFF presents a series of special segments as part of the general programming:

Made In USA: Films made in Chicago and all over the U.S. with a Latino perspective.

Women In Film: Each year the number of films directed and/or produced by Latinas is higher, we are proud to feature films created by this growing talented group of women.

Lesbian/Gay/Bisexual/Trans (LGBT): CLFF celebrates the important artistic contributions of Latino LGBT talent and films.
