In its eighth year, Charleston International Film Festival (Charleston IFF) is moving its five-day celebration of film—typically held in April—to the fall with the 2015 Festival taking place November 4–8. The Festival is also changing venues, moving exclusively to Charleston Music Hall this year for its intimate feel and superior acoustics for film.
Summer Peacher, Charleston IFF Co-Founder and President said, “We’re excited to build on the momentum created from last year’s Festival; these changes will help us do that. We couldn’t ask for a better venue and partner than Charleston Music Hall, and we plan on taking full advantage of everything fall in Charleston has to offer our local and out-of-area attendees.”
The 2014 Festival showcased filmmakers representing 11 different countries. The 75 shorts, animations, features, and documentaries shown covered a diverse range of emotionally charged and socially important themes. As the Festival continues to grow in strength and popularity, 2015 is positioned to be Charleston IFF’s strongest event yet.
