      Cleveland’s in the Movies! The Avengers to the Rescue!
      Ivan Schwarz puts Cleveland on the national screen. President of the Greater Cleveland Film Commission, he is responsible for bringing such big-budget flicks as The Avengers, Captain America, and Draft Day to Cleveland. Under Ivan’s leadership, over 300 productions have been filmed in Ohio and he aims to create a full-fledged film industry in Cleveland.
      Ivan Schwarz Bio

      Ivan Schwarz has been President and CEO of the Greater Cleveland Film Commission (GCFC) since 2007. He is committed to building a year-round, sustainable media industry through job creation, workforce development, and attraction of media productions to Ohio.

      Ivan has over 30 years of experience in the film and television industry. Prior to joining GCFC, he was a Co-Producer on the HBO mini-series Band of Brothers and a Location Manager on Entourage, My Name is Earl, The Comeback, From Earth to the Moon, as well as on many other films and television programs. He has worked all over the world alongside top industry professionals like Steven Spielberg and Tom Hanks.

      While at GCFC, Ivan has been involved in bringing to Cleveland many box office favorites such as Marvel Studios’ Captain America: The Winter Soldier, Avengers, Draft Day, Alex Cross, Funsize, Bad Grandpa, Take Shelter, Kings Of Summer The Fate Of The Furious and most recently Matthew McConaughey’s White Boy Rick.

      The goal of the Cleveland Stories Dinner Party is to bring to life some of the fun, interesting stories about Cleveland’s past – from sports, to rock ‘n roll, to Millionaire’s Row, — the series will focus on tidbits from Cleveland’s past that will really thrill the audience. The Music Box is presenting this series in partnership with the Western Reserve Historical Society’s new Cleveland History Center. We think the Cleveland History Center is one of the most important museums in Cleveland. An unknown gem that Clevelanders should know more about, and support. It is the only museum in Cleveland dedicated to preserving and documenting the history of Cleveland. The Cleveland History Center includes two mansions, the Crawford Auto Aviation Museum, Chisholm Halle Costume Wing, Research Library, Kidzibits Hands-On Gallery, rotating exhibitions, and the Euclid Beach Park Grand Carousel.
