CIFF42 Marketing Campaign Unveiled: EMBRACE CURIOSITY

The 42nd Cleveland International Film Festival (CIFF) is thrilled to unveil its marketing campaign, EMBRACE CURIOSITY, which speaks toward the inquisitive nature of the Festival, its artists, and its more than 100,000 attendees.

The campaign is designed by the team at Type Twenty Seven and focuses on the idea of curiosity. The CIFF provides unique opportunities for people to explore other cultures and ideas in an effort to challenge and perhaps change the ways we perceive and interact with the world around us.

CIFF42 is expected to include approximately 200 feature films and 200 short subject films, representing close to 70 countries. Over 300 guest filmmakers will be in attendance to share their talent with our audience. Program details will be announced on Friday, March 9th at Program Guides will be available throughout the area the week of March 12th. Tickets will go on sale to CIFF members on Friday, March 16th and to the general public on Friday, March 23rd. Tickets are currently on sale for Opening Night, which will take place at Playhouse Square on April 4th.
