Add the Cleveland International Film Festival (CIFF) to those organizations that are coming up with new and creative ideas to still get their product out during the global COVID-19 pandemic.

Beginning some time in April, CIFF, which was scheduled to begin their 44th annual fest today, will debut CIFF Streams. What's that mean?

For subscribers, many of the feature and short films that were going to be shown at this year's Festival will be available to watch directly from home.

More information regarding pricing, films and a launch date for their streaming service will be available soon.



In addition, their Festival trailer, which always debuts on opening night, was also released. The short film (below) was created by Fusion Film works and features the song Miles To Go from local musicians Astronymer and Jul Big Green.


For now, fans can purchase merchandise, see where past films are streaming, and listen to their podcast CIFF Speaks on all podcast platforms.

The Festival is also asking for donations via their Challenge Match program which features prizes for donations at every level. “Regardless of the amount, we promise your support will make a vast difference in creating the Festival’s road forward,” they said in a statement.

We’re keeping you informed…
...and it’s what we love to do. From local politics and culture to national news that hits close to home, Scene Magazine has been keeping Cleveland informed for years.

It’s never been more important to support local news sources, especially as we all deal with the ramifications of the coronavirus pandemic. Almost everything Scene is about -- our stories, our events, our advertisers -- comes down to getting together. With events on hold, and no print distribution for the foreseeable future, every little bit helps.

A free press means accountability and a well-informed public, and we want to keep our unique and independent reporting available for many, many years to come.

If quality journalism is important to you, please consider a donation to Scene. Every reader contribution is valuable and so appreciated, and goes directly to support our coverage of critical issues and neighborhood culture. Thank you.
