The Chicago Latino Film Festival is the longest running Spanish & Portuguese language film festival event dedicated to Latino Filmmakers and Cinema. Since 1985, the Festival has brought together audiences, film directors and actors to enjoy and lift motion picture arts from a Latino point of view.
In 2023 CLFF marks its 39th year edition continuing our mission beyond the hard years of the pandemic and returning to theatre’s where we find the full experience of film watching at its most enjoyable.
We aim to bring quality Latino films to Chicago. Films that lend a voice of expression that transcends political views into human forms of expression, sharing ideas and concepts that are funny, sad, dramatic, exciting or different from anything we have seen before.
