CIFF finishes up 

More than 2,500 movie lovers attended the Charleston International Film Festival this year. Most movie blocks sold out or were at capacity, according to CIFF. The festival’s Golden Crescent Award for Best Film went to its main feature, The 5th Quarter, written, directed, and produced by Rick Bieber. Shannon Laribo, a 16-year-old, won an award for best screenplay for In that Place. “Everything was super smooth thanks to the team and volunteers,” CIFF co-founder Brian Peacher says. “I just felt bad about having to turn some people away at the box office when we’d reach capacity. I guess that’s a good thing though.”
