The Cleveland International Film Festival promotes artistically and culturally significant film arts through education and exhibition to enrich the life of the community.
Does my film have to be a premiere to submit?
As CIFF is one of many festivals to sign Seed & Spark’s 2020 Film Festival Survival Pledge, we have committed to relaxing premiere restrictions for all CIFF45 submissions. We will also accept any films screened online in an official ticketed festival capacity. There are no premiere restrictions for CIFF45 submissions.
