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 2014. 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.

Geneva has long been a destination for affluent, well-educated, and culturally aware visitors from the Chicago area and around the globe. Local businesses and event sponsors benefit from ongoing tourism and the festival's growing popularity. National and international companies also enjoy the opportunity to enhance brand awareness with this influential demographic.

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.
