52nd Chicago International Film Festival begins

CHICAGO -- The 52nd annual Chicago International Film Festival is underway.

The festival kicked off with the opening night Chicago premiere of the acclaimed new Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone musical “La La Land."

WGN’s very own Dean Richards was the host for the festivities.

And organizers say it's the movies themselves that set Chicago apart from all the rest.
