The Music Box Theatre tells us …
Chicago International Children’s Film Festival: the largest festival for kids film in North America!
In 1983, Facets founded the Chicago International Children’s Film Festival, the first competitive festival of films for children in the U.S. The impetus for the Festival came from a need to introduce new, culturally diverse films for children to American children’s audiences, and to recognize excellence in children’s filmmaking. In addition, the Festival sought to empower children by involving them directly in the jurying process. From its inception, the Festival has had independent juries of children and adult media professionals awarding prizes in multiple categories.
This year, we are proud to present a mix of new release and foreign children’s films, as well as a special presentation by Disney Pixar’s Brian Larsen. Bring your family and have a wonderful time!
