BURN THE SHIPS at the Cleveland International Film Festival

Komen Northeast Ohio is once again partnering with the Cleveland International Film Festival, this year as they present BURN THE SHIPS, an intimate and moving portrait of the Akron Racers, the longest tenured team in the National Pro Fastpitch League.
