CHICAGO INTERNATIONAL MOVIES + MUSIC

Founded in 2008, the Chicago International Movies & Music (Previously CIMMfest) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit arts organization dedicated to exploring the relationship between music, movies, and visual media in all its forms. Bringing together films and filmmakers, music and musicians, art and artists, industry and audiences from around the world, CIMM celebrates creativity and discourse that showcase the power of collaboration.

CIMM was imagined and brought to life by musician Josh Chicoine (Cloudbirds, The M’s) and filmmakers Ilko Davidov and Carmine Cervi (BulletProof Film). No one knew what they were getting into at the start, but hundreds of films, concerts, tens of thousands of attendees and countless incredible experiences later, CIMM has earned its place as a one-of-a-kind Chicago fixture.

CIMM is made possible by its generous sponsors, grantors, by its fans, and most importantly, by its many dedicated volunteers. Join us in this continuing adventure!
