CIFF46 Streams will present nearly two-thirds of the in-person lineup over its eight-day run.

When the real estate of the southern U.S.
coast is eyed by the wealthy, tax hikes and
land auctions threaten the homes of the
Gullah people who live there and have been
stewards of the region for generations.. 

The Cleveland International Film Festival joins with cultural and art institutions around the world in standing in solidarity with Ukraine and its sovereign people. Because of that, we have made the difficult decision to not screen any films in CIFF46 that are produced by Russia-based companies or funded in any way by the Russian Federation. The Ukrainian Film Academy and European Film Academy, along with numerous Ukrainian artists, filmmakers, and others, have called on institutions worldwide to cancel cultural partnerships with the Russian Federation. The unlawful and brutal actions of the Russian government are being challenged across the globe. While we embrace artistic freedom and have not based our decision on the content or storytellers of any particular film, we must recognize that freedom itself now hangs in the balance in Ukraine. The two films that have been removed from the CIFF46 program are NO LOOKING BACK and UNCLENCHING THE FISTS.

Be sure to continue to check for program updates between now and April 17th.
