Cinema Columbus Film Festival

Central Ohio’s premier cinemas and exhibition venues are joining forces to create the region’s grandest annual film event – a centerpiece of Columbus arts and culture – which curates and celebrates essential new cinematic works from around the world.

Due to COVID-19, the decision has been made to postpone the first annual Cinema Columbus.
The health and well-being of our patrons, filmmakers, special guests, volunteers, and staff must come first, and we want to deliver the highest-quality film festival we possibly can. We are monitoring the evolving situation and will announce the new dates as soon as possible. Stay strong and stay safe, film fans! We’ll see you soon!

CAPA, in partnership with the Drexel Theatre and Gateway Film Center and additional support from community partner Film Columbus, are launching a new, annual film festival. The inaugural year will be in May 2020, and offer screenings at the Drexel Theatre, Gateway Film Center, and select CAPA venues. An exciting lineup of special events will be held throughout the festival, including red-carpet events, filmmaker talks, educational opportunities, and more.
