The Cleveland International Film Festival attracted more than 93,000 attendees to its 12-day Tower City movie extravaganza. Despite parking concerns, sporting events, and the lure of the casino, CIFF managed to squash its previous attendance record.

Of the 180 feature films and 164 shorts, "Good Ol' Freda," a documentary about Beatles' secretary Freda Kelly, won the audience choice award.

Filmmaker Freida Mock — another Freida! — won the 'Reel Women Direct' award ($10,000) for her documentary "G-Dog" about a Jesuit priest.

The film fest utilized every screen at Tower City and was just basically a wonderful time for everybody, notwithstanding the splooge-encrusted seats.
