Proudly presented by the International Latino Cultural Center, the Chicago Latino Film Festival celebrates its first quarter-century with over 100 feature and short films in an array of genres–fiction, documentary, animation, drama and comedy. The Festival runs April 17-29 and is considered the oldest and most comprehensive Latino film festival in the country. The film selections continue to reflect the great diversity of the Latino culture from the United States, Latin America, the Caribbean, Portugal, and Spain.

“I truly believe the Festival is a jewel for the City of Chicago that has contributed greatly to its positioning as a world-class city. For the past 25 years, I’ve committed myself to sharing the Latino culture with Chicagoans by highlighting the work of our artists and making a stand against discrimination. At this moment, I can proudly speak on behalf of everyone who has helped me, that we have a great achievement to celebrate!” expressed Pepe Vargas, Founder and Executive Director of the International Latino Cultural Center of Chicago and Director of the Chicago Latino Film Festival.
