Sponsored by the Cultural Arts Commission, the Geneva Film Festival has rapidly become a well-known venue for writers, producers, and actors to screen a variety of independent films and screenplays. The annual festival also provides technical workshops with industry professionals for filmmakers and film enthusiasts alike.

Since its beginning in 2007, the Geneva Film Festival has grown in popularity and status in the independent film festival community. Festival organizers are looking forward to an even bigger and better event in 2015. Previous year’s selection of world-class films originated from dozens of countries including the United States, Canada, United Kingdom, Ireland, Germany, Switzerland, Brazil and India to name a few.

In addition to world-class films, the event features a special screening of the Emerging Cinematographer Award Winners from the International Cinematographers Guild, educational workshops and much more.

The 8th Annual Geneva Film Festival will be held March 12–14, 2014 in historic downtown Geneva, Illinois, at Shodeen’s Dodson Place on the corner of 2nd Street and Fulton. More than 40 films are showcased including many international films.
