Cleveland International Film Festival } March 25 – April 5, 2020 } Tower City Cinemas

The Cleveland International Film Festival promotes artistically and culturally significant film arts through education and exhibition to enrich the life of the community.

(In other words, we present the newest and best films from around the world, and we do everything in our power to make sure that our audience learns something along the way - about other cultures, about the topic at hand, about the experience from the filmmakers themselves.)

Vision: The Cleveland International Film Festival is a leader in helping the world discover the power of the film arts to educate, entertain, and celebrate an inclusive human experience.

Guiding Principles

In pursuing its mission, the Cleveland International Film Festival will:

  • Set high standards for quality film education and exhibition, placing artistic and cultural merit above commercial appeal;
  • Work collaboratively to provide access to quality film arts;
  • Provide the best audience experience possible;
  • Champion diversity, equity, and inclusion while fostering understanding and appreciation of myriad cultures and values;
  • Cultivate an innovative and forward-thinking organization that catalyzes community and partner neighborhoods;
  • Promote among board, staff, and volunteers a work environment based on integrity, professionalism, teamwork, trust, and respect; and,
  • Ensure the organization’s financial stability and increase its financial self-sufficiency.
