LOOK FOR THESE FILMS 
ON THE CURRENT FILM FESTIVAL CIRCUIT



 

Every October, we see wonderful films at our annual Chicago International Film Festival, & we also see ALL of the films shown in our annual Chicago Festival of Israeli Cinema. 

We also get screeners for films that show at other festivals, even if they never make it here. So look for these films at your own local festivals. Sometimes they’re the best films in town!
