CCFF 2017

welcome to the Chicago Caribbean Film Festival. we screen films with
a caribbean connection!

The Chicago Caribbean Film Festival (CCFF) is sponsored by the Caribbean American Heritage Council of Illinois (CAHCIL) and the Oak Park Public Library.

The Caribbean includes English, Spanish, French, and Dutch speaking countries.

Founded in 2015, we work alongside the Piton International Film Festival (PIFF) (Saint Lucia); Houston Caribbean Film Festival (HCFF); and we sponsor a contest with the Bermuda International Film Festival (BIFF) to screen the winning short film.

The new screening dates for CCFF 2017 will be March, 2017 (mini-festival) and June, 2017 (major festival). All films will be screened in the Oak Park Public Library in the Veteran's Room (Main Branch).

834 Lake Street, Oak Park, IL 60301.
