What is the OVer-The-Rhine Film FestivaL?


Over-The-Rhine is a historic neighborhood where people from diverse backgrounds gather to shop, see art, and find community in downtown Cincinnati. Our international film festival brings together stories from diverse points of view that celebrate difference, and honor our shared humanity.  Using cinema as a tool to build empathy, we hope to create experiences for filmmakers and audiences that expand beyond the screen into the outside world and into real human relationships. We are the nation’s first diversity driven film festival led by people from the disability community.  We hope you will join us in person and online for top notch films from some of the world’s most unique storytellers.
