Founded in 2000 the Chicago Irish Film Festival is one of only a handful of Irish Film Festivals in the United States. The festival has consistently brought a truly representative selection of Irish films that embrace everything from classics to the contemporary. Each year since its inception the festival has screened features, documentaries, shorts and animation many of which have won awards and have had selected screenings at some of the largest festivals in the world including Cannes, Sundance, and Toronto. The festival has also been delighted to welcome as its guest the actors, directors, and producers that are the heart of today's Irish cinema. The CIFF is pleased to be a showcase for Irish film production that embraces innovation, independence, and creativity that is rooted in Ireland's rich cultural heritage.
