      Getting Your First Job in the Film Industry

      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!
