The Common Good International Film Festival takes place from February 17-20, 2023. Over four days in Claremont, California, CGIFF showcases high-quality cinema from around the world, handpicked by our curatorial team. Our vision is simple: to show films and have discussions that elicit common sense, common decency, and the common good. Join us at the Claremont Laemmle movie theater for a weekend of inspiring, celebratory cinema from around the world!
