The Cleveland International Film Festival promotes artistically and culturally significant film arts through education and exhibition to enrich the life of the community.
Is the CIFF an Academy®-qualifying festival?
Yes! The CIFF is actually one of few festivals in the world that qualifies for all three Academy Short Film categories! CIFF's Best Animated Short Film Award winner, Best Live Action Short Film Award winner, and Best Documentary Short Film Award winner will all qualify for consideration in the Short Films categories of the annual Academy Awards®. Please check the Academy® website for rules and eligibility.
It is with a heavy heart we pass along the news of the death of Oscar winning documentarian & CIFF Alum Julia Reichert. Over the span of 50 years, Julia used the power of film to be a prolific storyteller, activist, & champion of the working class. She will be profoundly missed. https://t.co/CUf6LVHlOc
