Advanced Tickets. Discounted Tickets. And so much more.

Each year the Cleveland International Film Festival (CIFF) presents over 190 features and more than 235 short films from 60 countries of origin. Feel inspired? Join to day and experience the Cleveland International Film Festival - The Home for Inspiration!

With your membership support, you not only help us to fulfill our mission, but you also play an active part in that mission through your awareness and involvement. As a CIFF member, you do not just escape into the darkness of a theater, you expand your horizons through exposure to new ideas, different cultures, and far-off destinations. You are not just purchasing a ticket to a screening, but joining a community - a community comprised of shared experiences and art appreciation that extends beyond the theater and the Festival to the Greater Cleveland community. Thank you for your support!
