CLEVELAND, Ohio (WOIO) - Over 70 films, shorts, animations and documentaries will be showcased in the Greater Cleveland Urban Film Festival (GCUFF,) which is taking place virtually from Sept. 10 to 18.

There are screenings at Mayfield Drive-In on Friday and Saturday.

The 2020 theme is “Black Films Matter.”

“Ever since 2011, GCUFF has resounded the message that Black Films not only matter, but should be acknowledged, celebrated, and shared,” Donna Dabbs, the Executive Director of GCUFF, said in a press release.

There will be a tribute to actor Chadwick Boseman, who recently died on colon cancer in his early 40s.

The festival begins with feature film, “The Best of Enemies.”
