This year, Cleveland International Film Festival, or CIFF45Streams, will take place online April 7-20, 2021. Here at Westlake Porter Public Library, we are very happy to support the festival as a Community Partner for the film A Costume for Nicolas. This (2D) animated film is an uplifting family-friendly adventure. Nicolas, a ten-year-old who has Down syndrome, has a special trunk filled with costumes which magically keep bad dreams away. A Costume for Nicolas was filmed in Mexico, in Spanish, and is being shown at the festival in English (dubbed).
When you are ready to purchase a ticket to A Costume for Nicolas, or any other film streaming at CIFF45, go to clevelandfilm.org, click on “FILM FESTIVAL” and you can find films using the A-Z guide. Once you click on a film, you can purchase tickets directly from that film's page on the site. And don’t forget to use discount code PORTER to receive $1.00 off per ticket. Also, keep an eye on our social media pages for videos, blogs, and other craft ideas that will be posted throughout the 45th Cleveland International Film Festival.
