The Cleveland International Film Festival (CIFF) celebrates our 40th year by welcoming over 100,000 attendees and filmmakers from around the world to our Cleveland home. For 39 years, we've provided our audience with the shared experience of film that not only inspires, challenges, and entertains, but also brings it all together to make the CIFF home to so many.

So it is with great pride that we unveil the CIFF40 marketing campaign at Designed by Brittyn DeWerth of Type Twenty Seven, the campaign is an homage to our history. It features representational line drawings inspired by each of the past 39 CIFF posters, now united for the 40th and presented in bold, bright colors of celebration.
