Cleveland Internation Film Festival presents
Getting Naked: A Burlesque Story
Sunday Apr 8 2018
Doors: 7:25 pm / Show: 7:45 pm
This event is 18 and over
To neo-burlesque pioneer Julie Atlas Muz, it takes three things to be a performer: “You need to get a costume; you need to get a gimmick; and then you need to just get up onstage and have the balls to do it.” Such creative chutzpah is on display throughout GETTING NAKED, a behind-the-scenes documentary focused on New York City’s bold and diverse burlesque community.
The Beachland Ballroom screening of GETTING NAKED: A BURLESQUE STORY will be followed by a free show presented by Ohio Burlesque.
(In other words, we present the newest and best films from around the world, and we do everything in our power to make sure that our audience learns something along the way - about other cultures, about the topic at hand, about the experience from the filmmakers themselves.)
Vision: The Cleveland International Film Festival is a leader in helping the world discover the power of the film arts to educate, entertain, and celebrate the human experience.
In pursuing its mission, the Cleveland International Film Festival will:
Set high standards for quality film education and exhibition, placing artistic and cultural merit above commercial appeal;
Foster understanding and appreciation of diverse cultures and values;
Work collaboratively to broaden access to quality film arts;
Cultivate an innovative and forward-thinking organization;
Ensure the organization’s financial stability and increase its financial self-sufficiency;
Promote among Board, staff, and volunteers a work environment based on integrity, professionalism, teamwork, trust, and respect; and,
Provide the best audience experience possible.
