The 42nd iteration of the Cleveland International Film Festival will kick off on April 4 with a screening of Nick Kelly's The Drummer and the Keeper, a film about a young drummer with bipolar disorder who befriends a 17-year-old with Asperger's Syndrome.

The film stars Dermot Murphy, Jacob McCarthy, and Peter Coonan. Kelly and producer Kate McColgan as well as actors Murphy and McCarthy will attend the opening night screening.

All those who attend the film are invited to the Closing Night Ceremony (dessert reception and awards presentation) around the Tower City Center Grand Staircase after the screenings.
