Chicago Critics Film Festival Returns

Chicago Critics Film Festival to take place November 12-14 at Music Box Theatre

Chicago, IL — The Chicago Film Critics Association (CFCA) today confirms the return of their acclaimed Chicago Critics Film Festival, a weekend-long celebration of movies on the big screen to take place November 12-14 at the city’s historic Music Box Theatre (3733 N. Southport Ave). Founded in 1990, the CFCA is the region’s largest and most respected association of film journalists, broadcasters, critics and media personalities promoting the analysis and appreciation of cinema.

Curated by CFCA membership, the Chicago Critics Film Festival routinely presents the most anticipated films of the year; with more programming details to be announced in the coming months, the entire CFCA looks forward to welcoming audiences safely back to movie theaters this fall. 

“Like every movie fan, we’ve sorely missed being in theaters for over a year,” said CFCA President Brian Tallerico. “With the safety of our guests and audiences top of mind and with the help of our longtime hosts at the Music Box, we can’t wait to gather again to share these stories on the big screen.”
