PANORAMA LATINX is an initiative at the Gene Siskel Film Center supported by a three-year grant from the Reva and David Logan Foundation. The goal of the initiative is to support audience development and to engage the Latino community through advocacy, programming, partnerships, and showcasing emerging local filmmakers. Latin America is experiencing a film renaissance right now. The Film Center is proud to be the year-round home for international screenings, including the important new work being made by Latino filmmakers. The Film Center strives to be welcoming and responsive to all communities.

CLARO is our new monthly post-screening discussion group bringing together Chicago area colleges and universities at the Gene Siskel Film Center. As part of the Panorama Latinx initiative, CLARO focuses on films from Latin America and by Latinx filmmakers.
