CIFF DReam Catcher Award
DReam Catcher was established in 2019 to honor the life and memory of David K. Ream (1949–2017), a Cleveland International Film Festival trustee and co-founder of Plexus.
The DReam Catcher Program and Award celebrate LGBTQ+ artists through the recognition of an LGBTQ+ filmmaker at each Festival and the presentation of a slate of films. The DReam Catcher Award will be presented to Todd Stephens during the live, interactive broadcast of CIFF45 Streams’ Happy Hour on the CIFF YouTube page. Be sure to check out these other films made by LGBTQ folks and add them to your watch list!
