My First Movies is for the littlest littles and youngest filmgoers. These films from around the world are intended to delight, bring out a smile or a giggle (or two). Most of all, these films are meant to be seen as a shared experience between caregivers, parents, and children to spark a lifetime love of the cinema. My First Movies is a 15-minute program of short films hand-picked for your littles from FACETS Chicago International Children’s Film Festival. Every week, you’ll see something new!

Film screenings are FREE and filmgoers receive a 10% discount on Navy Pier parking.
