THE CHICAGO CRITICS FILM FESTIVAL returns to the Music Box for its Sixth Year! The event, a two-time nominee for Best Film Festival (and 2017 runner-up) in the Chicago Reader’s last two “Best of Chicago” polls, annually features a selection of the most sought-after and anticipated films of the year hand-picked by members of the Chicago Film Critics Association, often with filmmakers, cast and crew in attendance to celebrate their work and connect with local audiences.
In 2019, guests included Lulu Wang (at the Chicago premiere of THE FAREWELL); Jim Gaffigan (for Closing Night selection LIGHT FROM LIGHT); and the legendary Tom Skerritt (in attendance for a 40th Anniversary screening of ALIEN). It is the only current example of a major film critics group that hosts its own festival, and it’s right here in Chicago.
