Women in Film Cincinnati hosts the Better Cities Film Festival at Hollywood Drive In, the best films on making cities better. Films@ 8 pm!

About This Event

20 short films we're screening over two nights have all been featured in Better Cities Film Festival. WIF Cincinnati selected these 20 for their relevance to urban issues we face here -- making Cincinnati more bike and pedestrian friendly, increasing affordable housing, minority entrepreneurship, racial equity, and building sustainably.

You can buy a walk-in/bike-in ticket for $10, BYO chair/blanket and FM radio so you can tune into the cinema sound. Or, drive in with friends & familiy. Hollywood Drive In only accomodates 40 vehicles, so buy your $25/car ticket now before we sell out!

Female Filmmakers are featured, and films by women make up the entire first half of the program September 26. On Oct. 3, our anchor film is by a local female filmmaker. Highlighting women working in our region's Film/TV/Digital industry is an important aspect of WIF CIncinnati's mission.

Thank You Sponsors: Haile Foundation, MVAH Partners, First Financial Bank, Reser Bicycle Outfitters, Queen City Bike, Urban Land Institute, Green Umbrella, The Port's HURC, Cincinnati Off-Road Alliance, Cincinnati Development Fund, Cincinnati Recreation Commission and Cincinnati Metropolitan Housing Authority.

Nothing is more inspiring than a powerful story! So, we will engage in post-film discussion led by Cincinnati City Councilmembers, from10-11 pm at Brink Brewing, across from Hollywood Drive In. CM Greg Landsman leads on Sep 26 and CM Jan-Michele Kearney leads on Oct. 3.

We have celebrity emcees to help WIF raffle off wonderful prizes at the event. Channel 9's Cincy Lifestyles Anchor Mona Morrow is our emcee Sep. 26 and our emcee Oct 3 will be named shortly.

Raffle prizes include a basket of delicious chocolates, a Reels on Wheels mobile cinema, private yoga lessons, pet portraits, fine art, wine, gift certificates and more (see photos below).

Raffle tickets are $8, for sale here and at the event. Bring your raffle receipt with you on movie night and you'll drop your ticket(s) into the prize basket(s) that you hope to win.

Women in Film Cincinnati members receive a free raffle ticket! If you'd like to join our organization, we'd love to have you, so join before you come to film festival. WIFCincinnati
