Cincinnati Center City Development Corporation (3CDC) is partnering with the ReelAbilities Film Festival, Cincinnati’s largest film festival, to bring award winning films from around the world to Cincinnati at some of its top venues in 2014 as part of the festival’s 2014 ReelPrograms.  The actual festival takes place February 27th – March 7th, 2014.

On Wednesday, May 14, 2014, beginning at 6:30pm, (prior to the 7:10pm game) the Cincinnati Reds’ most famous bat boy, Teddy Kremer and The ReelAbilities Film Festival present the ESPN documentary short, “Teddy Ballgame” on Fountain Square.  Teddy Ballgame is the story of a young man with Down syndrome who unites a city.  Teddy will be on site for photos and autographs.

Washington Park will also host The ReelAbilities Film Festival as part of their summer movie series.  Disney’s Finding Nemo, an original festival selection, will be screened on July 12th, 2014 at 9pm. The film festival, now in its third year in Cincinnati, will continue to utilize top venues in downtown Cincinnati.  2013 venues included The National Underground Railroad Freedom Center, the Cincinnati Art Museum and the Contemporary Arts Center.  “This film festival adds to the mosaic of world-class arts offerings our city has.  The Cincinnati ReelAbilities Film Festival, organized by LADD could not be more pleased to partner and showcase the incredible venues our city now has that are both beautiful and accessible, thanks to 3CDC’s efforts,” festival Chair Kathleen Cail says.

3CDC is a 501(c) 3, tax-exempt, private, non-profit corporation. Its mission and strategic focus is to strengthen the core assets of downtown by revitalizing and connecting the Fountain Square District, the Central Business District and Over-the-Rhine (OTR).
