Dear MSIAFOM supporters,
A leading U.S. regional film festival, the CIFF has been recognized as one of the 50 leading film festivals in the world by IndieWIRE. They have an amazing line-up this year, and we're honored to be a part of it! MSIAFOM will screen in the Greg Gund Memorial Standing Up Competition, which highlights "films with a conscience." This is CIFF's largest and most popular competition.
Director Michele Josue is also in competition for the ReelWomenDirect Award for Excellence in Directing by a Woman. Both competitions are based on audience votes, so please wish us luck!!
We're also honored to announce that Matt's parents Judy & Dennis Shepard will be joining us at the festival and will be there for our post-screening Q&As. So if you're in the Cleveland area, we hope to see you!!! And please spread the word! We'd love to sell out our screenings! Tickets are available to the general public on March 7th.

With love & gratitude,
Michele & the MSIAFOM team
