The Chicago International Film Festival is taking it to the streets of Lakeview for the first-ever ChiFilmFest Opening Night Block Party! Just like the movies they’ll be playing at the Music Box Theater, expect this premier event to have something for film lovers, families and neighbors! Food trucks, beer & wine and activities will line Southport for this 5 hour Wednesday evening fest (did we mention you can get your picture taken on a red carpet?!). This block party is a perfect way to spend your evening regardless if you’re going in to see one of the films!

As the longest running competitive film festival in North America, the Chicago International Film Festival is a celebration of cinema that includes film premieres, tributes to actors and directors, and signature
red carpet events. Internationally renowned for its excellence in programming, showcasing the best in U.S. and world cinema, the Festival offers attendees opportunities to experience innovative works by first-time
filmmakers alongside films by celebrated masters and also preview the season’s top award contenders.
