Chicago International Social Change Film Festival

Organized by a diverse leadership team of filmmakers, public attorneys, journalists, and other progressive professionals, the Chicago International Social Change Film Festival seeks to spark social change by providing a high-profile venue for independent, activist artists from all over the world. Over three days, ideas flow freely among festival-goers at the luxurious Showplace ICON during discussion panels, cocktail parties, and world-premiere film screenings. Though international in scope, the festival provides a local focus as well, featuring appearances from Illinois activists and films made by Chicago high-school students.

For those who love cinema, from the movie theater to the DVD box set
