The 44th annual Cleveland International Film Festival (CIFF) has announced its opening and closing night films. The festival, which runs from Wednesday, March 25 to Sunday, April 5, 2020 will open with the English dramedy Military Wives and will close it’s final year at Tower City Cinemas at 7 p.m. with Dream Horse, a Welsh movie about Dream Alliance, an unlikely racehorse bred by small-town bartender played by Toni Collette.
Dream Horse, which also stars Damian Lewis, had its world premiere at the Sundance Film Festival last month. CIFF had this to say of its Closing Night choice:
“With very little money and no experience, Jan convinces her neighbors to chip in their meager earnings to help raise Dream in the hopes he can compete with the racing elites. The group’s investment pays off as Dream rises through the ranks with grit and determination and goes on to race in the Welsh Grand National, showing the heart of a true champion.”
“It’s a great last film to screen at Tower City,” says Bill Guentzler, CIFF artistic director. “It’s a very inspiring film that shows a group of people can come together and do what they dream of and succeed.”
