Please come to a screening of GI JEWS, and support us as we compete for two (!) awards:
REELWOMENDIRECT AWARD FOR EXCELLENCE IN DIRECTING BY A WOMAN
We are thrilled to once again celebrate female filmmakers at the Cleveland International Film Festival. The ReelWomenDirect Award, based on audience vote, will be presented to a woman director at our Closing Night Ceremony, accompanied by a $10,000 cash prize. In an industry historically dominated by men, we are honored to showcase these women–who make up 37% of our feature filmmakers–and the empowered female perspectives they provide within their films.
and the GREG GUND MEMORIAL STANDING UP COMPETITION
Our Standing Up program includes “films with a conscience.” Standing Up started as a sidebar to focus on films with the mission to change the world and grew into a celebration of activism and the fight for social justice. Many of these films highlight personal stories featuring individuals who set out to teach lessons on how to live a better life. One of the aspects all these films share is the impact they make on viewers long after the credits roll. Through the films, Standing Up honors Greg Gund—as well as others with a different view of the world—and the continual fight to make it better.
Based on audience vote, the winner of this competition will be announced at our Closing Night Ceremony and receive a $7,500 cash prize.
