The Cleveland International Film Fest is in full swing. If you haven't gone yet, what are you waiting for!
The CIFF is nationally recognized as one of the best in the nation. They are even currently in the running for the USA Today10 Best contest. You can cast your vote here. There really is a film for everyone. One of our favorites this year so far is a local short about the Cleveland Cultural Gardens, Hidden in Plain Sight.
If you haven't been to the CIFF yet, here's a article from Fresh Water Cleveland with some tips from the pros (like me!): Movies, movies, everywhere: A guide to surviving and thriving at the film fest.
This year, we all stayed downtown at the Renaissance - this might need to be a tradition! Even though we don't have a long drive home, it's really nice to spend the night in our cool city.
The weekend went WAY too fast! We've been taking full advantage of this incredible festival almost daily. After a two day break, I'm back at it today for my annual Girls Night at the Movies.
Love the view of the still frozen lake:
And we got to see Public Square in full demolition mode:
Dinner was at Pura Vida - not only is it a SUPER close walk from Tower City, the atmosphere is fun, the food is delicious and the beautiful lighting makes it feel like a special event.
