UPDATE: CIFF44 CANCELLED

While we are saddened that our film loving audience will not have the opportunity to experience CIFF44's amazing films and talented filmmakers, we understand the City's obligation to protect the health and safety of all residents. We regret not having the opportunity to celebrate our three decades at Tower City Center. But we look forward to presenting CIFF45, April 7-18, 2021, at our new and permanent home in Playhouse Square.

FAQs CIFF44 Cancellation

Can I get a refund for my CIFF44 submission fee?

CIFF Submissions Refund Policy:

If your film was an official selection for CIFF44 and you are wondering about getting your submission fee refunded, please email beth@clevelandfilm.org (and please include the name of your film).

If you submitted your film to be considered for CIFF44 but it was not selected, we will not be refunding submission fees. This is due to the fact that our selection process was completed in full – each film was watched by at least three members of our screening team, we completed our CIFF44 lineup based off the work of our screening team, and notifications were sent out on February 21, 2020.

Whether or not your film was selected for CIFF44, we are happy to provide written feedback about your film from our screening team. To request your feedback, please email reviews@clevelandfilm.org (and please include the name of your film).
