Now in its 50th year, this celebrated festival offers a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to experience the sights, sounds and experiences of other cultures on the big screen and the chance to hear and maybe even meet some of the artists behind them. For two weeks, you can see films from more than 55 countries at AMC River East 21, located in Streeterville.

The anniversary celebration will kick off with an Opening Night Gala presentation at the Harris Theater, followed by a Golden Anniversary celebration at the Chicago Cultural Center

One of the Festival's most notable features is the vast diversity of offerings, with numerous competitive categories and several highlight programs such as Black Perspectives, Cinema of the Americas, ReelWomen, Out-Look, After Dark, and the City & State program, showcasing films made in Chicago and throughout Illinois. In 2014, the Festival will shine a spotlight on Scandinavian cinema.
