Policies & Disclaimer

At the Chagrin Documentary Film Festival, we strive to create a respectful and inclusive environment for all attendees. As a film festival committed to providing a diverse and thought-provoking experience, we present films that cover a wide range of topics and perspectives. Some of the films may contain robust language and challenging ideas.

The views expressed in the documentary films and by speakers at the Festival are strictly those of their filmmakers and subjects. They do not represent the views of CDFF, Fevered Dreams Productions, Festival sponsors, or supporters. Accepted films are carefully selected by a diverse committee based upon the quality of the storytelling and relevance of the film. The process includes multiple layers of consideration to present wide-ranging and important topics. Documentary films, by their nature, can be controversial.

We understand that individual preferences and sensitivities may vary, and certain films may contain content that some viewers may find challenging, disturbing, or unsuitable for certain age groups.

By attending the Chagrin Documentary Film Festival, you acknowledge that personal discretion is necessary when choosing films to watch. We cannot guarantee that all films will be suitable for all attendees, and we disclaim any liability for any discomfort, offense, or dissatisfaction arising from the content of the films screened.

Thank you for joining us on what we believe will be an inspiring journey, and we hope you have a remarkable and engaging experience at the 14th Annual CDFF!
