Due to funding problems in the city of Chicago and our unwillingness to compromise a quality of the Chicago International Documentary Festival, the CIDF Board of Governors made a difficult decision to cancel the 2009 CIDF dates and postpone next festival edition until further notice. We are sorry for any inconvenience that decision may create to our partners, filmmakers, and audiences.

In a meantime, the CIDF will continue its regular
docsPace program which showcases the highest
caliber documentaries being made around the globe.
