#CIFF39: Get Shorty Giveaway

Thursday, January 15, 2015

[The ticket giveaway is now closed, congrats to @HeyEscapist whose comment was chosen via random.org]

It's January in Cleveland which means it's almost time for the 39th Cleveland International Film Festival (CIFF). 

Can you believe it?! Yippee! 

This year's CIFF, which runs March 18-29, will again make its home at Tower City Cinemas with over 350+ films being shown on premises. Neighborhood theaters/venues will also be getting some love with film events at Beachland Ballroom, Cedar Lee Theatre, Chagrin Cinemas and the Akron Art Museum.

One thing I've always respected about CIFF is that it does such a great job with its events. It's more than just films and it's more than just a singular event during the proper festival. Case in point the Film Feasts series sponsored by Hyland, creator of OnBase (full disclosure, I work at Hyland), where for the 12th consecutive year an opportunity is provided to engage the community, celebrate the arts in Cleveland and cultivate new film buffs. 

The Film Feast I'm most looking forward to this year (and have attended in the past) is Get Shorty. On Thursday, January 29 at 7p.m., my beloved Capitol Theater will play host to the Get Shorty event where attendees will gather to view a selection of short films, vote on their favorites and actually have a say in what films get screened at this year's CIFF. 

In addition to films, Get Shorty attendees will be served up an array of food and beverages provided by Culinary Occasions.

Tickets are $100 a piece and can be purchased online here - OR - you can win a pair here on the plum!
