Chicago Film Archives is a regional film archive dedicated to identifying, collecting, preserving and providing access to films that represent the Midwest. Our purpose is to serve institutions and filmmakers of this region and elsewhere by establishing a repository for institutional and private film collections; serve a variety of cultural, academic and artistic communities by making the films available locally, nationally, and internationally for exhibition, research, and production; and serve our culture by restoring and preserving films that are rare or not in existence elsewhere.
Come join us as we celebrate another year of preserving Chicago’s rich history and culture on film. Kick off the holidays with music, drink, tasty food and of course some twentieth century cinema at Savage Smyth, Chicago’s newest swanky but sweet spot to party. Our theme this year is Chicago’s blues history! Read More
