65th Columbus International Film And Video Festival Begins Wednesday

The Columbus International Film + Video Festival (CIF+VF) starts this Wednesday, April 19. The film festival is the oldest film festival in North America and this year marks 65 years of filmmakers and enthusiasts getting together to enjoy the art. The CIF+VF will run from April 19 until 23, with multiple films showing each day.

If you’ve never been to the Columbus International Film + Video Festival, you should give it a visit.

“I would say that our film festival can open your eyes to subjects you may not experience in a multiplex or on television and can introduce you—through their work and sometimes in person—to creative voices that will shape entertainment in the years to come,” said Jeremy Henthorn, the Executive Director of the CIF+VF.

Not only will the festival expose you to the great, original films, you’ll get a unique experience through discussion.

“Plus, film festivals are one of the rare occasions where audience members can discuss the films directly with the people who are making them,” said Henthorn. “A peak behind the curtain that is difficult to get anywhere else!”

The festival kicks off with a showing of “Signature Move” at the Wexner Center for the Arts on Wednesday at 7 p.m. The award winning movie was directed by Jennifer Reeder, a Columbus Native. Reeder is an Ohio State University Alumna and won the Wexner Center Artist Residency Award.
