Description

The Chicano International Film Festival (ChIFF) is back for an exciting 2017 with film submissions from around the world! Now with over 20 years of dedication to the advancement of Chicana/o history, culture and expression through film, ChIFF is happy to announce this year’s dates for November 11th, 2017.

This year's festival will feature a discussion with prominent Chicano/Latino directors, actors and industry leaders with a special guest MC. As always, this year's activities include the ChiFF Awards for Lifetime Achievement & Biggest Impact, plus special screenings from select winners of the 9 film categories.

Since 1995, ChIFF has been one of the few platforms to showcase the robust contributions of Chicanas and Chicanos on film. ChIFF has provided a platform that connects filmmakers and audiences from around the world, first in tiny venues throughout East LA and in 2016 at ArcLight Cinemas in Hollywood. ChIFF's Festivals combine film screenings, art installations, panel discussions, live performances and community events to cultivate a deeper discussion of the Chicana/o experience within the US and abroad.

ChIFF is committed to making a difference by providing mentoring and educational opportunities. We inspire and empower future filmmakers! The heart of ChIFF is building connection with the television, film and digital media industries to create possibility and opportunity for future generations of filmmakers and storytellers.
