Charleston International Film Festival

Charleston International Film Festival
April 24-28, 2013 at Downtown Charleston
at Sottile Theatre and Cinebarre!

The Charleston International Film Festival (CIFF) is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization created in 2007 to bring people together through the art and science of film. Through this unique art, which has the power to touch our emotions and provoke thought like no other, we intend to promote the exchange of ideas, a greater cross-cultural awareness, and inspire others around the world. CIFF accomplishes this with a film and screenplay competition, dedicated to showcasing the art and talent of emerging and veteran filmmakers and writers from the U.S. and around the world, in an amazing city known for its deep-rooted American history.

Over the five day spring event which attracts visitors and aficionados from across the globe, all genres of film including a wide range of subject matter are explored. The latest sneak previews and premieres of some of the best new features, documentaries, shorts and animations of local, national and international filmmakers are screened. After the shows, be our guest at the finest select venues around town for nightly after-parties and deal making opportunities. In addition to films and special events, insightful industry panels and educational workshops are offered. The festival closes on a high note at the formal Awards Gala, when the finest in filmmaking and writing displayed during the competition are recognized and honored for their outstanding efforts.
