The Cleveland International Film Festival is committed to using film as a catalyst for thought-provoking conversations and ideas that address issues faced by our world today. FilmForums are moderated panel discussions that offer Film Festival audience members the opportunity to learn more about the issues brought up in the film - to ask questions and to share their ideas. FilmForums take place immediately after the conclusion of selected film screenings. Panels include filmmakers, educators, and people who have experienced issues addressed in the films.
