Welcome to the 29th Chicago Latino Film Festival, running from April 13-27, 2013!
The CLFF is produced every April by the International Latino Cultural Center of Chicago (ILCC), a pan-Latino, nonprofit, multidisciplinary arts organization dedicated to developing, promoting and increasing awareness of Latino culture among Latinos and other communities by presenting a wide variety of art forms. During the festival, films from all of Latin America, Brazil, Spain and Portugal are screened throughout the city.*
We hope you enjoy watching independent and international films, because we have an incredible lineup for you. This year, we also have a bevy of events beyond film screenings, so make sure to check out our schedule for the latest special events and programming.
The Chicago Latino Film Festival is the largest and oldest Latino film festival in the nation, and presents over 100 films of cultural and social significance from Latin America, Spain, Portugal and the U.S.
