The Charleston International Film Festival celebrates its fifth anniversary April 11-15, moving to the Sottile Theatre as its main venue and offering its now customary selection of independent films, educational seminars and workshops, nightly after-parties and an awards gala.

Returning on the bill of fare are outdoor screenings, the incorporation of art exhibits and interactive media, and an opening night reception block party on George St.

Additional screenings will be shown at the Cinebarre theaters in Mount Pleasant.

CIFF co-founders Brian and Summer Peacher also announced that Charliewood Pictures, LLC, is its new presenting sponsor.
