The annual festival also provides technical workshops with industry professionals for filmmakers and film enthusiasts alike.

Located just 40 miles west of Chicago in Kane County, the city of Geneva is an exciting community that is home to many artists and unique retail businesses. More importantly, the people of Geneva pride themselves on being a sophisticated audience with a warm affection for the art of filmmaking.
