The Chicago European Union Film Festival

March 2025

Spotlight on Poland


For 27 years, the Gene Siskel Film Center has presented the Chicago European Union Film Festival (CEUFF). Starting in 2024, the Film Center introduced a new iteration of the festival: an annual spotlight of the country in the EU Presidency. Presenting Chicago audiences with a potent cultural immersion and showcasing bright new native talents alongside a slice of repertory favorites, our EU Spotlight welcomes guests and artists and introduces the tastes of the country on display at special events and at our concession stand. Set your calendars for the spotlights to come: Poland (2025), Cyprus (2026), and Lithuania (2027).
