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