Circus International Film Festival
Circus International Film Festival started in 2021, born out of a worldwide pandemic and a hunger for creative expression.
Marisa Diamond, a filmmaker and circus artist, realized the need for a film festival dedicated to circus, after years of submitting her circus films to film festivals under the Music Video, Dance, or Experimental categories.
CIFF exists for circus artists and filmmakers alike. We are here to support and honor bringing the art of circus to the medium of film.
In its inaugural year, CIFF is entirely volunteer organized and run.
CIFF is dedicated to equity and representation, across race, gender, age, ethnicity, sexual orientation, class, (dis)ability, language & religion.
