The 16th annual Zurich Film Festival (ZFF) will celebrate the comeback of cinema and will show eagerly awaited autumn and winter titles in its Gala Section. Among the twelve newly confirmed titles is the film Dream Horse.
Zurich is one of the few film festivals in Europe that will be held in person this year, despite CoVid-19. Zurich opened up its program this year to films from other Swiss festivals forced to cancel due to the pandemic. ZFF is also opening its theaters to independent movies, mainly from the U.S., that would have premiered at other film festivals, such as SXSW and Tribeca, that were canceled due to CoVid-19. The U.S. screenings are primarily for the film industry to give world sales companies a platform to present their movies to international distributors.
ZFF runs from Thursday September 24 – October 4, 2020 and tickets go on sale September 14. Get your tickets online here from 12:00 noon on September 14, 2020 or at seetickets.ch. ZFF Vouchers and Festival Passes can be purchased immediately, which means you can profit from discounts as soon as presale starts.

Following a Dream

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.”
