CLEVELAND, March 16, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Cleveland native Brian Patacca has been around the acting block and finds himself back where his career all began – Cleveland, for the 35th Cleveland International Film Festival (CIFF).

Patacca will be starring in a Fine Young Man Productions, 10 minute short titled the in-between, part of CIFF's 10% shorts Program 1, showing on Saturday, March 26 at 9:30pm. The second in a trilogy of shorts focusing on the gay community, the in-between explores the challenges, expectations and hope that comes from entering into a relationship.

"I'm thrilled to be home to share this dynamic film with the community where I was raised. Alain and Jason constructed a beautiful, touching film triptych and I'm grateful to be a part of it. Icing on the cake is being able to share this important window into the gay community with the diverse community where I grew up," said Patacca.
