The Ohio Theatre and Event Center, along with its partnership with The Arts Commission, is welcoming filmmakers and move buffs to experience an art-filled weekend beginning during the second annual Glass City Film Festival.

Individual tickets are $10 per screening. The festival also offers an All Event “Fancy Pass” for $60 which allows movie-goers access to all screenings and activities at the festival.
