The Cinemas of Chicago

Join us for the kick-off of the 2021 CineYouth Festival! Our city has proven once again to be fertile ground for filmmakers to find sources of creative self-expression, and these shorts are a mere sample of what the future holds for Chicago cinema. Stream our opening program, The Cinemas of Chicago, at 6:30pm CT and then tune in afterward at 8:30pm CT for a livestream Q&A.

See the next generation of filmmakers at CineYouth 2021, streaming globally for a week-long virtual event from May 6-13, 2021. CineYouth 2021 presents 14 international short film programs of films as well as panel discussions, live filmmaker Q&As, and more!
