SIFF will again be the place for an intimate celebration of unforgettable cinema (World & U.S. features, documentaries, and shorts programs). More than 100 films will be shown - running the gamut from the environment to LGBT to animation.
A few of the films that you can look forward to:
The Human Experiment
Starring and narrated by Sean Penn, this film explores chemicals found in everyday household products.
Born in Chicago
Born In Chicago is a soulful documentary film that chronicles a uniquely musical passing of the torch. It's the story of first generation blues performers who had made their way to Chicago from the Mississippi Delta and their ardent and unexpected followers. See trailer
