The Chandler International Film Festival proudly announces the return of its eighth annual film festival to the Valley of the Sun for another year of food, fun and flicks.

The festival will take place Jan. 19-28, 2024 at LOOK Dine-in Cinema, found at 1 W. Chandler Blvd., in Chandler.

LOOK Dine-In Cinemas is a technology driven, dine-in movie exhibition company based in Dallas, TX with seven locations in California, Arizona, Texas, Georgia, New York and Florida, according to a press release.

Known as one of the fastest growing film festivals in Arizona, CIFF was created to bring filmmakers, industry professionals and film fanatics together to celebrate all genres of cinema. Previous noteworthy attendees include Rob Schneider, Michelle Rodriguez and many more industry experts, the release states.

Along with a diverse mix of international films, the weekend will also include an opening night ceremony, educational filmmaking workshops, discussion panels, special guest appearances and a closing night award ceremony.

“It is such a pleasure to announce that the eighth annual Chandler International Film Festival will be back again in January,” said Mitesh Patel, CIFF president and festival director. “We attribute our massive success these past few years to community support, and thanks to Arizonans, we’ll be able to extend this year’s festivities with an extra day to spotlight even more talented filmmakers.”

The 10-day festival will celebrate various multi-cultural days with different dedicated themes including Japanese, Spanish, Norwich and Indian cinema. Guests can enjoy a variety of programming throughout the week with nightly after parties across downtown Chandler, mingling opportunities with filmmakers from around the world and a Hollywood-style red carpet event to conclude the festivities.

Films selected to show at CIFF will be announced in the coming weeks.

Full festival passes start at $240 and can be purchased at the Chandler International Film Festival Eventbrite page.
