Purchase Festival Films 

Featuring over 200 films from 40 countries each year, the Chicago International Children's Film Festival has showcased some of the best live action and animated features and short films for over 30 years. We are often asked if the films shown at the Festival are available on DVD. While many are available commercially, some are never distributed in the United States on DVD.

Below is a list of some of the best, past Festival films, available exclusively on Facets DVD or other independent distributors.
