Submissions are now open on FilmFreeway for the 45th Cleveland International Film Festival. CIFF45 is scheduled to take place April 7–18, 2021 at its new home at Playhouse Square in downtown Cleveland, Ohio, so long as health and safety conditions permit CIFF to do so.
CIFF accepts films of any runtime, any genre, and from every country. We have committed to relaxing premiere restrictions and extending production deadlines to June 1, 2019, for all CIFF45 submissions. We will also accept any films screened online in an official ticketed festival capacity.
