Can we look forward to seeing “The Donut Hole” at say the Cleveland International Film Festival?
ES: We would like to do the Cleveland Film Festival but the Cleveland Film Festival has been rather unfriendly to local filmmakers, which is why C.I.N.E.M.A. next year will be hosting our own film festival. It will be the Cleveland Independent Filmmakers Festival and Cleveland C.I.N.E.M.A. Film Festival as it called right now. Probably, we will premiere it there depending on if we get any international release. We would like to get into the larger festivals like Sundance or Toronto Film Festival. Most likely, it will premiere at the C.I.N.E.M.A. Festival, which will be only for Cleveland filmmakers. TC: What are three movies you recommend to the student body? ES: I would say “Kill Bill: Vol. 2,” “A Very Long Engagement,” and “Man Bites Dog.” C.I.N.E.M.A. is online at cinemacleveland.com.
