One of the city’s most popular and beloved events is upon us. The 37th Cleveland International Film Festival (CIFF) runs through Sunday, April 14 at Tower City Cinemas. Each year, the Cleveland Museum of Art partners with the festival to sponsor a film, and this year is no exception. We sat down with John Ewing, curator of film, to talk to him about the festival and our film The Painting.

This July, the Cleveland Museum of Art’s Painted Poetry on Film series will continue with three Japanese films spanning the 1950s to the 1990s. Japan has a rich film heritage and the screenings include films from some of the country’s most important filmmakers: Akira Kurosawa, Kenji Mizoguchi, and Masaki Kobayashi.
