Who we are
The Chicago International Children’s Film Festival is the first Academy® qualifying children’s film festival in the world and our Best Animated and Best Live Action Short Film categories are Oscar® qualifying.
We seek films that both entertain audiences and challenge them to widen their perspectives. But more importantly, we seek out films that are made for kids, not simply about them.
The 35th Festival runs November 1 – 9, 2018
