Secrets of Specialty Film Exhibition


Here’s Why You Should Attend

This month, Film Pro John Ewing will discuss the secrets of specialty film exhibition, and kick off the conversation for the audience to discuss and contribute their ideas. After a short break, some featured films by local filmmakers will be shown. Following these films, the event will turn into a networking session where the industry can catch up on each other’s projects. Film Café is free to attend, and will feature some fantastic food & beverage specials. We strongly recommend you sign up in advance to ensure a seat at the table!

John Ewing

John Ewing is the Director of the Cleveland Institute of Art Cinematheque and also the Curator of Film at the Cleveland Museum of Art. He has held both positions since 1986. Ewing co-founded the Cleveland Cinematheque in 1984 and first started showing Cinematheque films in 1985 at Case Western Reserve University. In 1986 Ewing moved the program to the Cleveland Institute of Art, where it continues to this day, screening approximately 250 different feature films annually. In 1986 Ewing also became the first person ever hired by the Cleveland Museum of Art to do nothing but program films at the museum. There he presents approximately 100 different films every year.

Ewing came to his current positions after having run film series in two Northeast Ohio public libraries and at Denison University, his alma mater. He has also been a film reviewer for numerous local publications. He won a Cleveland Arts Prize in 1995 and, in 2010, was named a Chevalier (knight) in the Order of Arts and Letters of the Republic of France. The New York Times has called the Cinematheque “one of the country’s best repertory movie theaters.”
