Thu 10/17 @ 7PM
The Music Box Supper Club’s Film Café series continues with a program called “Secrets of Specialty Film Exhibition.” It features a gentleman who knows more about the topic than anyone else in Cleveland: John Ewing.
Ewing not only cofounded the Cleveland Cinematheque, now the Cleveland Institute of Art Cinematheque in 1984, which he continues to direct today, but was hired in 1986 as film curator at the Cleveland Museum of Art, where he has been programming films since then. If there’s an obscure independent or art film he hasn’t heard about, it probably doesn’t actually exist.
Ewing will talk about the nuts and bolts of what he does, followed by a conversation and Q&A with the audience. Following a break, some films by local filmmakers will be screened and networking where those in the film industry can meet, greet, learn what others are working on and possibly make contacts for future collaborations.
The event is free, and there are food and drink specials the club describes as “fantastic.” Doors are at 5pm so come early to hang out and eat. Advance reservations are recommended. Go here.
