Calling all filmmakers! The 38th Cleveland International Film Festival will be held March 19 - 30, 2014 in Cleveland, Ohio.
Founded in 1977, the Cleveland Film Society has presented the Cleveland International Film Festival every spring for over three decades. In April 2013, Ohio's premier film event featured over 345 films originating from over 60 countries and an attendance of over 93,000 - making the CIFF one of the largest and longest running regional film festivals in the US.
The CIFF is one of the few Academy Award® qualifying festivals in the nation and was also recently recognized as one of the 50 leading film festivals in the world by IndieWIRE. Visiting filmmakers, panel discussions, and student screenings are all CIFF highlights.
