The 36th Cleveland International Film Festival has unveiled its schedule, and you can spend the rest of your day reading about the more than 300 movies they'll be showing here.

The fest starts on March 22 and runs through April 1 at Tower City Cinemas.

Among the films showing this year is Superthief: Inside America's Biggest Bank Score about a Cleveland guy who masterminded a 1972 bank heist in California that remains the all-time biggest haul in this country (the crew, made up of Cleveland and Youngstown guys, almost got away with $30 million).

The movie was directed by Tommy Reid, who made the Danny Green documentary that screened at last year's fest.

There's plenty of choices this year. Seriously, spend some time with the schedule — you'll find some cool things in there.

Tickets for films go on sale March 2 for members and March 9 to everyone else. —Michael Gallucci
