Tickets Now on Sale for CIFF's GET SHORTY

Tickets are now on sale for CIFF’s GET SHORTY – a one-of-a-kind event where you get to help program the Festival! Now in its 16th year, GET SHORTY will take place on Friday, February 8,2019at 7:00 p.m. at its new location in the stunning Ohio Theatre at Playhouse Square.

This event, which is a fan favorite and sells out nearly every year, allows attendees to have a say in what will screen at the CIFF! Here’s how the evening will work: we will begin the gathering with hors d’oeuvres and beverages before putting our programming skills to work. Once inside the Ohio Theatre, we will present a handful of short films, and at the conclusion of eachfilmyou will cast your vote. At the end of the evening, the film with the highest score will be guaranteed a spot in the CIFF43 program line-up!

Tickets are $50 and can be purchased at, or by calling 216.623.3456 x 14.

CIFF43 will take place March 27 – April 7,2019at Tower City Cinemas and additional locations. For more information on the CIFF, please visit or call 216.623.3456.
