Chicago Latino Film Festival produced by the International Latino Cultural Center of Chicago (ILCC) aims to provoke the audience and challenge oversimplified mainstream standardized images of Latino identity by presenting the best and most recent films and videos from Spain, Portugal, Latin America and the United States. CLFF successfully wrapped up its 27th edition in 2010, as the oldest and most comprehensive Latino film festival in the country, representing over 100 films in an array of genres –fiction, animation, documentary, and shorts that reflect the great diversity of Latino culture. The Festival stresses the importance of the artistic and educational value of a film. While CLFF is non-competitive the most popular feature film is awarded the Audience Choice Award.
The International Latino Cultural Center of Chicago (ILCC) produces other events throughout the year including workshops, retrospectives and premieres.
ILCC launched the first Iberoamerican film collection for distribution on home video. In addition, the ILCC maintains a video library as a resource for educators,
filmmakers, distributors, television stations and others. The videos are from past participating Festival films and are used for educational and non-commercial purposes.
