Liz Marshall, director of “The Ghosts in Our Machine” was the first filmmaker at the 38th Cleveland International Film Festival to accept the Focus on Filmmakers award. Designed to showcase minority and less visible filmmakers, this year’s Focus on Filmmakers program emphasizes films and filmmakers from the LGBT community, featuring those who identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual, or transgender.

“I’m here to engage in dialogue with you,” said Marshall, “so ask me anything.” Her feature film, “The Ghosts in Our Machine,” is a documentary that reveals hidden truths about the animal industry.

Filmmaker Malcolm Ingram is the second Focus on Filmmaker Award recipient at the 38th CIFF. He is thrilled to bring his own “gay culture” to Cleveland, especially because he believes “there’s a really interesting and vibrant queer community in Cleveland.”

Ingram’s feature film “Continental” is a documentary focused on exposing gay bathhouses, specifically The Continental in New York. Ingram wants to share “a gay history” with Cleveland audiences and says it is his privilege to tell these stories. CIFF is proud to present the Focus on Filmmaker program to Cleveland audiences and hopes to engage in dialogue like never before.
