The Cleveland International Film Festival returns to its original home (1977-1990) for the eighth consecutive year. You must have a Film Festival pass or GOOD OL’ FREDA ticket for admission to the pre-film reception and to the film.
This event is presented in loving memory of Rick Whitbeck (1946-2008). One of the founders of the Film Festival, Rick filled many staff roles over the years and served as the organization’s first Board President. The Rick Whitbeck Evening at the Cedar Lee Theatre provides us with an annual opportunity to honor Rick’s devotion to his family, his friends, and the Film Festival.
