NAME OF FESTIVAL: Chicago Critics Film Festival
WHERE: Chicago, Illinois, USA
ABOUT THE FESTIVAL
Created by the Chicago Film Critics Association in 2013, the festival offers a selection of films comprised of recent festival favorites and as-yet-undistributed works from a wide variety of filmmakers ranging from award winners to talented newcomers chosen by members of the organization, the only current example of a major film critics group hosting its own festival. The festival brings together an eclectic array of films ranging from raucous comedies and foreign-made dramas to thought-provoking documentaries and midnight genre films with a couple of programs of shorts thrown in for good measure.
