Calvin & Hobbes Documentary Coming to Cleveland Film Festival

Posted By on Sun, Mar 3, 2013 at 4:49 PM


One of Northeast Ohio's most famous and notoriously reclusive residents, Bill Watterson is revered endlessly and lovingly by fans for creating Calvin & Hobbes.

As the CIFF begins to post selections and trailers for this year's festival, "Dear Mr. Watterson" stood out immediately. Sure, he won't sit down for an interview, but filmmakers did the next best thing: line up his fans to talk about his legacy and the important influence of Calvin & Hobbes on their lives and work.

The trailer is below. You can join us in line for tickets when they go on sale.
