“Road to the Red Carpet”



        And the Oscar goes to the Greater Cleveland Film Commission for rolling out the Red Carpet for its spectacular benefit for its mission to build the film industry in Cleveland!
    More than 650 guests walked the red-carpeted entrance at Pickwick & Frolic, a terrific venue for this event whose chairman was Lisa Mullin and whose design and decoration was by Sherri Foxman of Party411. Moet & Chandon champagne flowed as people posed for souvenir pictures augmented by cardboard cutouts of Hollywood celebrities. Hearty hors d’oeuvres were available at every turn for the crowd wending its way to the silent auction predominantly featuring movie memorabilia. Among the offerings were chances to buy roles as extras on the George Clooney film currently in production in Cincinnati. As time drew near for the live broadcast of the Academy Awards, guests staked out their tables downstairs at Hilarities, settling in for the long night.
    Prior to a live auction, Film Commission Executive Director Ivan Schwarz welcomed everyone and said, “We’re creating jobs in Ohio; the passage of the Film Tax Credit in 2009 has helped us not only achieve our goals but surpass our expectations. Each year the number of movies made here has doubled.” The development and economic impact of new industry in this region, he said, is “far-reaching.” STORY AND PHOTOGRAPHS BY KATHRYN RIDDLE
