The rapidly growing international film festival circuit
has become a vital alternate distribution network, a place where
smaller, less overtly commercial films can find audiences eager to
experience works that once more readily graced art-house and specialty
cinemas. And while the young, still-evolving Cincinnati Film Festival
(CFF) might not have the reputation or infrastructure of a Sundance or
the many well-established smaller fests across the U.S., it’s quickly
making its mark.
