For the ninth consecutive year, South Franklin Circle is a sponsor and screening venue for the Chagrin Documentary Film Festival. This five-day celebration of the art of documentary film draws audiences from all over Northeast Ohio, the U.S. and the world and brings them into our community. This year’s festival features 89 amazing films from 31 countries highlighting both art and culture.

The Film Festival is just one of many events at South Franklin Circle that educates and inspires audiences. Our residents believe that remaining involved within the greater community is a key component in maintaining an active and healthy independent living lifestyle. In fact, a few South Franklin Circle residents helped select some of the films!

We are thrilled to be a part of the Chagrin Documentary Film Festival and hope you join us for this year’s wonderful event!
