Chicago • The Chicago Latino Film Festival, one of the country’s oldest continually running film festivals in Spanish and Portuguese, will celebrate its 39th edition with a new web experience for festival attendees.

The new site is part of an initiative by CLFF’s parent organization, The International Latino Cultural Center of Chicago, to update the brand’s look and offer better access to film schedules and ticket sales through the Internet.

The 39th Edition of the Chicago Latino Film Festival will open on April 13th, 2023 at the AMC River East 21, 322 E. Illinois St. with the Chicago premiere of Claudia Sainte Luce’s offbeat comedy about second chances, Love & Mathematics. The rest of the Festival will take from April 13th to April 23rd at the Landmark Century Center, 2828 N. Clark St. with a special screening at Instituto Cervantes, 31 W. Ohio St., on Wednesday, April 19. The full program will be unveiled March 21st. The Closing Night gala will also be held at the AMC River East 21 on Saturday, April 22 with the Chicago premiere of Mamacruz, Patricia Ortega’s kinky and poignant comedy about sexual awakening among the elderly.

The new website will have an indexed multimedia listing for each film; visitors will be able to guide their attendance with showtimes, trailers, and online ticket purchases. Members of ILCC will receive special discounts on merchandise and tickets for each event. General Admission audience can enjoy discounts on Monday and Tuesday during CLFF.
