Cleveland International Film Festival

Now that St.Patty's Day is over (my saddest St.Patty's Day ever - stupid cold - no green martinis for me), it's time for me to think about this weekend's NYC half marathon, but if you're going to be around town this weekend and next week, you should think about checking out the Cleveland International Film Festival.  It runs March 18 - 28 and features all different kinds of independent films.  I've never actually been to the festival before (shocking, right?). But since this is the year of "why the heck not" and I'm trying to keep myself occupied, I'm going to check out Youngstown: Still Standing, a film about the rise and fall of Youngstown.  Over the years, I've come to learn a bit about the history and scandal in Youngstown, and I'm interested to hear about Youngstown from some of its most famous natives - Ed O'Neil and Ray Mancini.

Tickets for all of the films are available online.  If you're thrifty like I am, type in the word "Organic" at checkout to save $2 on each ticket.  (Thanks, Whole Foods!)

What movie(s) are you looking forward to seeing?
