Planning to drive to the Festival? Be sure to give yourself plenty of extra time. We ask you to arrive at your film at least 20 minutes early, so please be sure to work in time for finding parking and getting from your car to the theater.

Tower City Center offers limited self-parking for $5 to CIFF Patrons when available and with parking ticket validation. You must have your parking ticket validated at Tower City Cinemas. Valet Parking is also available at Tower City Center at regular rates. Visit for more information.

However, parking at Tower City fills up fast, so we encourage you to have a Plan B. There are nearby parking garages and lots (for a fee).
