Secrets of Specialty Film Exhibition


Here’s Why You Should Attend

The film industry here in Northeast Ohio has become one of the hottest growth industries for the region. The Music Box is proud to partner with the Cleveland Film Commission, and the Cleveland State University School of Film and Media Arts, to present the monthly Film Café. The goal of the Film Café is to offer a fun environment for fans and other film industry pros to learn more about filmmaking from each other. Each month, a Film Pro will dissect a specific topic, and kick-off a conversation for the audience to discuss and contribute their ideas. The event will morph into a networking session where the industry can catch-up on each other’s projects. The event 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 Bio

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.”
