For the fourth year in a row, CFI - Northeast Ohio is serving as a Community Partner with the Cleveland International Film Festival.
The film we're promoting this year is IN THE SHADOW OF THE SUN, a documentary about the plight of albinos in Tanzania, who face an ever-increasing murder rate due to the superstitions spread about them (that their skin and body parts can bring good luck, have magical properties, etc.) by witch doctors in the country.
There are three screenings of the film:
- Monday, April 8 @ 2:05 p.m.
- Tuesday, April 9 @ 6:25 p.m.
- Wednesday, April 10 @ 11:50 a.m.
I'm scheduling the meetup for Tuesday, since it's the only screening in the evening. It's a good idea to arrive at least a half hour before show time and get in line. People are let into the theater 15-20 minutes before the show, and any seats not taken at that time can be sold to those waiting on standby.
Tickets go on sale to the general public Friday, March 22 @ 11 a.m. You can buy online at clevelandfilm.org, by phone at [masked] or at Tower City Cinemas. Best to buy tickets in advance. And be sure and use our discount code "CFI" when ordering to get $2 off reg. price of $14. (The code will give you a discount on any and all festival tickets -- not just on our film.) It's also important to use the code as it tracks how many tickets CFI and its friends buy.
Maybe we can eat somewhere after the film (has run time of 85 min.). Please post any restaurant suggestions.
