The Chagrin Documentary Film Festival is a celebration of documentary storytelling and of the filmmakers who bring us their stories. Founded in honor of late filmmaker David Ponce, the Chagrin Documentary Film Festival is proud to bring stories from around the world to the beautiful Chagrin Valley.
Our Filmmaker Lounge runs throughout the Festival and is a wonderful networking opportunity for visiting and local filmmakers.
