I just wanted to make sure that you all know that the film gods have seen fit to grant Northeast Ohio another plentiful year of film-harvest. And they're granting you a chance to win tickets to the film harvest!
The Cleveland International Film Festival (CIFF) is kicking off in about three weeks and we've got a discount code for you, akronlife devotees. When you go to the festival's website, www.clevelandfilm.org, to peruse the films and purchase your tickets, enter the code AKRLFE and save yourself $2 on your ticket. (You can also check the film list and times with the CIFF app.)
Here's just a taste of my "Films to See" list for this 35th Cleveland International Film Festival. I'll be posting more and giving you some bigger bites, but first I need you to do something for me...
***I'll be giving out FREE PAIRS OF TICKET VOUCHERS to the festival (two per winner) and Free Film Festival Posters over the next week and a half. All you need to do is send me one of your favorite movie quotes! Winners will be drawn from a pool of the first 50 respondents, So HURRY! Email your favorite quote and any responses to: firstname.lastname@example.org. OR just let me know on facebook.
Follow us on Twitter @akronlifemag and on Facebook: Akron Life & Leisure Magazine for film updates reviews and for other contests.
Without further ado, my first batch of 9 "Gotta/Going To See Films" (not in any order of importance):
Uncle Boonmee Who Can Recall His Past Lives
Small Town Murder Songs
If I Want to Whistle, I Whistle
The Rowan Waltz
Kawasaki's Rose (check out this link to see why this film's plot may quite possibly be hard to follow: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pLubZ94jy1E&feature=fvw)
I will follow up with some more meaty recommendations later. But for now, just get cracking on your own list. MORE BLOG ENTRIES
