Fall Fundraiser: Lights, Camera, Chicago
Thank you for your support!
The Chicago International Film Festival is hosting their annual fundraiser, Lights, Camera, Chicago, leading up to the 57th Chicago International Film Festival. This year’s outdoor reception-style event will celebrate Chicago – from film, food, and music. Festivities include silent auction, cocktails and “tastes of Chicago,” live music from Expo76, and a special award ceremony presenting Artistic Director Mimi Plauché with France’s Chevalier de l’Ordre des Arts et des Lettres honor.

Proceeds from the event and silent auction will help support Cinema/Chicago’s year-round programs including the Chicago International Film Festival and free public and educational programs.
Cinema/Chicago, the presenting organization of the Chicago International Film Festival, is a year-round non-profit cultural and educational organization dedicated to fostering better communication between people of diverse cultures through the art of film and the moving image. We serve Chicago’s diverse and under-served citizenry by providing access to world-class cinema. We aim to enrich Chicago’s cultural environment by presenting film in contexts that encourage discussion and debate.
