The CIFF Code of Conduct serves to provide a clear understanding of the standard of conduct expected when participating in the Cleveland International Film Festival (CIFF) and all its manifestations— meetings and gatherings, events and parties, venues, social media accounts, and official communications (verbal, written, and digital). The Code of Conduct serves as a guide to ensure the CIFF is a respectful, open, inclusive, and safe environment for all to gather, share, learn, and celebrate in an atmosphere free of harassment.
The Code of Conduct places an obligation on all individuals to take responsibility for their own conduct and applies to all participants, including but not limited to: attendees, members, guests, trustees, full-time staff, seasonal staff, volunteers, panelists, screening team members, sponsors, community partners, neighborhood partners, media partners, and vendors.
The CIFF does not tolerate harassment of any kind and reserves the right to revoke credentials and/or remove, temporarily or permanently without notice or refund, any person who does not adhere to the CIFF Code of Conduct in all of its manifestations.
