Hello Cleveland art, creativity and film lovers. Today I want to share with you a bit about the upcoming Chagrin Documentary Film Festival kicking off next week, October 5th through the 9th.
The Festival is a five-day celebration of the art of documentary film, at venues in and around the village of Chagrin Falls. This inspiring event draws audiences from all over to experience documentary films and the compelling art and culture they highlight.
They plan for 76 films, for 5 solid days at 7 venues with over 10 thousand attendees…what could be more fun than a film festival in the fall?
I really would like to see Good Luck Soup; a film about a Japanese-American, who grew up in a predominantly Irish-Catholic Cleveland neighborhood. This movie was screened at last years Cleveland International Film Fest but I never made it.
Looking forward to opening night on October 5th when downtown Chagrin is transformed with red carpets and lots of film celebration fun. The opening film is “Chasing the Win” made by Laura Sheehy and Chris Ghelfi about a global horse racing success story. I am so looking forward to grabbing my annual kick-off Pumpkin Spice Latte, walking around “the falls” and then settling in for an evening of celebrating film and the spirit of the documentary filmmaking process.
Check out the festival website for a complete listing of films. Tickets to the films are $10 each or you can see all the films with a film festival show pass for $75 each. Get your tickets today!
