Bringing Films to Fruition ACTION! That’s what a New York film company wants in downtown Cleveland. NEHST studios has agreed to locate a studio in the Cleveland convention center, hoping to start productions next month. The owners pledge to spend $80 to $100 million over the next two years making movies in Northeast Ohio. It could be the start of something big for the local economy. But if the state legislature doesn’t agree on tax incentives, the film company will say “CUT.” On the opening day of the Cleveland International Film Festival, we’ll have a sneak preview and talk about productions that are already rolling in Northeast Ohio as Cleveland dreams of becoming a major movie town.
