Because of the G8/NATO Summit taking place in mid-May in Chicago and the subsequent business and school closures, Cinema/Chicago has changed the dates of CineYouth 2012. CineYouth will now be taking place from May 31 – June 2. Additional programming and event details and opportunities will be announced as they are finalized.
CineYouth Festival Director Rebecca Fons says, "We apologize if this date change negatively effects your travel plans, but hope very much you can still join us for the 8th year of CineYouth. CineYouth will again remain free and open to the public of all ages!"
Cinema/Chicago is also pleased to announce the deadline extension for submission. Films must be postmarked by April 12, 2012. Filmmakers will be notified of programming decisions on or before Monday, April 30th.
