Chicago Irish Film Festival

Come to the Chicago Irish Film Festival February 28-March 3 and stay at the nearby and affordable (FREE PARKING!) LaQuinta Inn & Suites in historic Hyde Park!

The Chicago Irish Film Festival, dedicated to presenting the works of Irish filmmakers since 1999, opens for Chicago audiences a window into the color and complexity of Irish life. From documentary and drama to horror, comedy and animation, CIFF specializes in US premieres and films that have recently screened at Sundance, Tribeca, and SXSW. And since the inception of CIFF, we have screened most of the Irish Films that have won, been nominated or short-listed for an Academy Award.

Contemporary Irish films bring the lyrical and self-reflective richness of a long artistic tradition to bear on unique stories and pressing social issues with a gaze both critical and loving. CIFF strives to include a broad representation of current Irish cinema in both English and Irish language, and encourages submissions that highlight the extraordinary diversity and creativity that is the mark of Irish filmmaking wherever in the world it may occur.

The Chicago Irish Film Festival will be held at the Logan Theatre, 2646 North Milwaukee Avenue. For tickets, go online to and follow the prompts.
