37th Cleveland Film Festival

Thursday, March 28, 2013

The Cleveland International Film Festival runs April 3rd-14th - an extra day has been added to the schedule! With 300 films from 65 different countries, it’s a lot to pack into just 12 days. Bill Guentzler, artistic director of the CIFF, provides the details.

Tyler Davidson is a local filmmaker who released a film two years ago called “Take Shelter” that enjoyed critical acclaim. The New York Times called it remarkable, describing it as “a quiet, relentless exploration of the latent and not so latent terrors that bedevil contemporary American life.” And now, he’s back with a new film called “Kings of Summer,” which is opening this year’s Cleveland Film Festival. It’s already been called “a hilarious heat-warmer” and “an instant classic.”

Leaders over at the Cleveland Institute of Art invited a world-renowned sculptor to come to Cleveland and work with students on a project. His name is Beat Zoderer, born in Switzerland, and he didn’t start off as an artist but rather an architect. But that career path didn’t last too long once he realized that the client was in charge, not him. He wanted to call the shots so he became an artist. We sent our cameras out to capture his collaboration with students and, as you will see, it was an exercise that blurred the lines between teacher and student.
