International Sports Film Festival of Ohio

The International Sports Film Festival of Ohio (ISFFO) makes its debut this spring at the Gateway Film Center in Columbus, Ohio.

The festival includes films, speakers, and events that raise important questions about the ways that religion, gender, and nation separate us inside and outside of sports. ISFFO aspires to generate conversations about how sports can break down barriers, connect communities, and inspire hope.

Ghibli at GFC

In 2016, the film center presented Ghibli at GFC, a four-month screening series of anime giant Studio Ghibli’s films. It was the first time anywhere that the entire Ghibli catalog had been presented in order of release, and visitors travelled to Columbus from as far away as Florida and Iowa to see movies they couldn’t see anywhere else.

Now, the series has returned to the film center, which will run January 1 through February 24, culminating in the world premiere of the newest Ghibli film, The Red Turtle.

Where available, matinees will be presented with English voice acting. Evening shows will be presented in original Japanese with English language subtitles.
