For the past three years, the Charleston International Film Festival has taken place in April. However, they’ve announced that their 2011 event will go down May 18-22 at the American Theater.

Attendees can still expect movie premieres, industry workshops, panels, and after-parities during the festival, which is hosted by Summer Spooner Peacher and Charleston native Brian Peacher.

CIFF is now accepting submissions, guidelines for which can be found at their website. In what may be considered a solution to snafus experienced in 2010, selected films may not be screened in the Charleston area for 90 days prior to the festival.
