As you are probably aware, Cleveland Mayor Frank Jackson has declared a state of civil emergency in response to confirmed cases of COVID-19 in Cuyahoga County, as has Governor DeWine in the state. This is to create the flexibility needed for the city and state to respond effectively in the coming days. Today the Governor issued a ban on events larger than 100 people.
At the Greater Cleveland Film Commission, we value and prioritize the health and safety of our community, and are therefore postponing the public gatherings we had scheduled for March and April. New dates for our Spring Media Mixer and Stuntman for a Day Workshop will be announced as soon as possible.
In the meantime, we are open for business, the team is on duty, and we are here to support filmmakers, crew, vendors, members, donors, partners and the general public as always. We will continue to share film news and notices of jobs and training opportunities through our website, e-news and social media. And we are working to plan programs and events to bring to you as soon as it is safe to resume these activities.
