Chicago International Children’s Film Festival

Chicago International Children’s Film Festival

It is the mission of the Chicago International Children’s Film Festival to set an internationally-recognized standard of excellence in film and television production for children. We strive to support the work of talented and dedicated filmmakers by awarding prizes, by showcasing international films of the highest quality, and by providing a professional forum through which quality children’s films may gain increased distribution and access to wider audiences. The Festival is also committed to engaging young viewers with positive media images and using media as a tool for learning.

CHILD-PRODUCED FILMS: Films that have been produced by children aged 6 to 14 are considered to be “child-produced.” An adult supervisor is allowed; however, the entire film must be conceived and produced by children with minimal adult input. Child-produced films must match the Festival criteria outlined in item 8 below. There is no entry fee for child-produced films. No more than three films may be submitted free of charge by a single child, team of children or producing organization.

TEEN-PRODUCED FILMS: Films that have been produced by teens aged 15 to 18 are considered to be “teen-produced.” An adult supervisor is allowed; however, the entire film must be conceived and produced by children with minimal adult input. Teen-produced films must match the Festival criteria outlined in item 8 below. There is no entry fee for teen-produced films. No more than three films may be submitted free of charge by a single teen, team of teens or producing organization.
