The Cleveland International Film Festival is proud to hold screenings in Akron for the fifth consecutive year. We will add The Nightlight as a third screening location -- in addition to the Akron Art Museum and Akron-Summit County Public Library. Plus the program will now take place on Friday evening and Saturday.

Friday's screening of FINDING THE GOLD WITHIN will be preceded by a reception in the Library lobby. Hor d'oeuvres and beverages will be served. That screening will be followed by a FilmForum.

TICKETS: Tickets can be purchased in advance online, by phone, or in person at the CIFF Box Office at Tower City Cinemas. Day of show tickets can be purchased on-site beginning one hour prior to the start of the first screening at each Akron location.

WILL CALL: If you don't already have your tickets, Will Call will open one hour prior to the start of the first screening at each Akron location.

PARKING: Convenient and free parking can be found at the High & Market Deck (down the street from The Nightlight, across the street from the Akron Art Museum, and directly connected to the Akron-Summit County Public Library).
