CLEVELAND: The 45th Cleveland International Film Festival (CIFF45 Streams) has come to a close after a two-week online run, April 7 – 20, 2021, during which it showcased 117 feature films and 182 shorts films, representing 63 countries. CIFF45 Streams is proud that 46% of its films – including 49% of its feature films – were directed by female-identifying filmmakers.

The CIFF45 Streams audience cumulatively watched 2,316,784 minutes of film with an impressive 51,216 streams throughout the Festival. Based on an average of two individuals watching any given stream, this means that CIFF45 Streams had 102,432 viewers. At this year’s Festival, a stream was counted if at least 70% of the feature or short was viewed. 

“We are overwhelmed with gratitude for our community’s support of CIFF45 Streams. And we are incredibly happy for our filmmakers, who were able to share their amazing work with so many film lovers,” said Marcie Goodman, CIFF Executive Director.

Cash prizes for the Festival’s esteemed 34 competitions and other awards totaled $114,500. Audience votes granted top honors -- the Roxanne T. Muller Audience Choice Award for Best Film, presented with  support from the Callahan Foundation -- to the intimate and powerful documentary NOT GOING QUIELTY, directed by Nicholas Bruckman (USA).

Among the top honors for short films were the three films that will qualify for consideration in the Short Films category of the annual Academy Awards®, as determined by jury deliberation:
_Best Animated Short Award winner: Migrants, directed by 
Hugo Caby, Antoine Dupriez, Aubin Kubiak, Lucas Lermytte, and Zoé Devise (France). This award was sponsored by MP Star Financial.

_Best Live Action Short Award winner: Distances, directed by Susan Béjar. This award was sponsored by Anne E. Bloomberg and Alan Gordon Lipson & Judy Harris.
