Filmmakers Ted Hope, David O. Russell, and Lisa Cholodenko to speak at Cleveland Public Library on May 26

Award-winning film directors David O. Russell (THE FIGHTER) and Lisa Cholodenko (THE KIDS ARE ALL RIGHT) will join producer Ted Hope (AMERICAN SPLENDOR, 21 GRAMS) for a conversation on the independent film industry on Thursday, May 26, at 6:30 pm in the Cleveland Public Library’s Stokes Auditorium. This program is free and open to the public.

This conversation will focus on the process of creating, producing, and distributing films in a changing marketplace defined by new technologies, and on the differences between the personal narratives of independent films and major studio productions. The program is part of the Lockwood Thompson Dialogues, which are presented by the Cleveland Public Library in partnership with Cleveland Public Art. The Lockwood Thompson Dialogues are generously supported through an endowment of the late Lockwood Thompson, who was a trustee of the Cleveland Public Library and an avid supporter of the arts.
