2013 Chicago International Children’s Film Festival

Friday 25 October – Monday 4 November 2013

Chicago International Children’s Film Festival: the largest festival for kids film in North America! The movie monsters of the Chicago International Children’s Film Festival return October 26-27 and November 1-3. To celebrate the Festival’s 30th anniversary, the Music Box will once again join Facets’ Children’s Programs to showcase over 200 movies from around the world – selected from thousands of entries.

In 1983, Facets founded the Chicago International Children’s Film Festival, the first competitive festival of films for children in the U.S. The impetus for the Festival came from a need to introduce new, culturally diverse films for children to American children’s audiences, and to recognize excellence in children’s filmmaking. In addition, the Festival sought to empower children by involving them directly in the jurying process. From its inception, the Festival has had independent juries of children and adult media professionals awarding prizes in multiple categories.

This year, we are proud to present a mix of new release and foreign children’s films, as well as a special presentation by Disney Pixar’s Brian Larsen. Bring your family and have a wonderful time!
