The Cleveland International Film Festival begins March 19 and runs through March 30, 2014. The Festival, now in its 38th year, screens more than 300 feature films, documentaries, shorts, and animated films from more than 50 countries.
The CIFF screenings are held throughout the day at Tower City Cinemas on the Avenue. There are also midnight screenings on Fridays and Saturdays. Tickets to most films are $14 each and are on sale now via the CIFF Web site and the Tower City Cinemas box office. It's a great way to see well-made, independent films that normally wouldn't play in Cleveland. For the film schedule, visit the CIFF Web site.

The beginning of Daylight Saving Time is also a perfect time to replace the batteries in your home's life-saving devices, including smoke alarms and carbon monoxide detectors.
