The mission of the festival is
to broaden the viewing horizons of audiences throughout Central
Illinois and beyond, by bringing films that rarely or never get
seen in local theatres.
At the 2017 LFF, audiences will get to experience a full
spectrum of exciting and engaging films - live- action,
animation and documentaries, shorts and features. Audiences will
also have unique encounters with the filmmakers behind the
cameras of these cinematic favorites. Some of the events on our
program this year include 2017 Academy Award nominated and
winning live-action, documentary and animated short films!
The Friday evening opening Gala event will include a very
special “work-in-progress” screening and panel discussion with
Brenda Chapman (the director of Brave) and the filmmakers who
are developing her next directorial effort.
