The Midwest Film Festival is the nation's only film festival solely dedicated to the Midwest filmmaker, presenting audiences with regionally produced independent cinema throughout the year.
This well-established film festival sits proudly at the center of the creative production community in Chicago and the Midwest. We are dedicated to serving filmmakers and content creators by building diverse audiences, offering educational resources, and supporting inclusion to cultivate organic relationships.
The Midwest Film Festival is made possible in part by a grant from the Illinois Arts Council, which receives funds from the National Endowment for the Arts.
