Chicago Palestine Film Festival 2020

Later this month, Gene Siskel Film Center partners with the Chicago Palestine Film Festival to present this postponed and newly formatted nineteenth annual festival representing the spirit and mood of contemporary Palestinian life. Three exciting drive-in screenings playing on selected dates at Chi-Town Movies in Chicago’s historic Pilsen neighborhood are followed by a slate of films available virtually, alongside Q&A discussions with filmmakers. This festival is dedicated to exhibiting film and video work that is open, critical, and reflective of the culture, experience, and vision of the artists. Stay tuned for confirmed dates!

This year's festival is made possible in part through the support of the Crossroads Fund and the hard work of many volunteers. For their invaluable cooperation the Gene Siskel Film Center thanks the members of the Chicago Palestine Film Festival Committee.
