VENUE PARTNERS

Connecting with the community.

MAKING THE CLFF ACCESSIBLE

The Center has worked with several community organizations, which host special programs (film screenings, concerts, comedy shows, dance performances, etc.) free of charge, allowing families (who otherwise could not attend the regular shows) the opportunity to enjoy an outing with their children. Each year between 700 and 1,000 people attend these events. Additionally, we provide about 5% or 100 free tickets for the special events of the Film Festival. Similar type of arrangement is implemented with other cultural programs throughout the year.

The Chicago Latino Film Festival continues its connection to the community by partnering with educational institutions and organizations throughout the city. The Venue Partners Program allows community members to view films that are otherwise inaccessible. This experience allows audiences to learn of the diversity of other cultures and hopefully connect with their own cultural heritage.

The International Latino Cultural Center appreciates the support of our 2017 Venue Partners.
