Cleveland International Film Festival 2016 Akron Preview

I had a pretty busy day today, so I went to the Cleveland International Film Festival 2016 Akron Preview at the Akron Civic Theater – a perfect Akron treat!

Was great to catch up with familiar folks and made a few new friends.

My experience was outstanding right from the ushers, to eating delicious food, watching a great selection of trailers and movies hand-picked by the organizers for Akron.

Fun facts from the announcer’s desk:

  • Nightlight Cinema has had 200,000 attendees watch films at their cinema!
  • Good Ol’ Boy is going to be THE FILM that will celebrate Cleveland International Film Festival’s 40th anniversary
  • This year’s festival will feature a film from Antarctica!
  • At the Akron Preview organizers clocked 750 RSVPs – the preview grows!

Here are the trailers/movies that I witnessed on screen:
