Cleveland International Film Festival } April 7 – April 18, 2021 } Playhouse Square

Can I get the submission fee waived?

CIFF is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. Fees collected through the Call for Entries process assist in our operations, so please do not request a waiver, unless you meet one of the following requirements.

If your film was submitted to and selected for CIFF44, then you may resubmit your film for CIFF45 with a waiver. If your film was submitted for CIFF44, but not selected, then you will not be able to resubmit the same film for CIFF45.

If you are an Applicant who is also a CIFF Alum, meaning that CIFF has screened one of your feature or short films in a previous festival, then CIFF will waive your submission fee for any film meeting the CIFF45 requirements outlined herein.

To request a fee waiver, please contact Beth Steele Radisek, CIFF’s Special Programs Director, at beth@clevelandfilm.org.
