Former Clevelanders, Anthony and Joe Russo have gone on to become big-time Hollywood directors. They started small with films such as Welcome to Collinwood, a comedy that stars William H. Macy, George Clooney and Sam Rockwell, and recently directed 2014’s Captain America: The Winter Soldier. They’re also on board to direct the next Avengers flicks, due out in 2018 and 2019. They’ll be in town at noon on Friday, Nov. 6, to host the Greater Cleveland Film Commission’s 2015 Behind The Camera: Lunch with the Russo Brothers at the InterContinental Cleveland Hotel.
For every ticket purchased, a ticket to a private educational lecture with the Russo Brothers will be donated to a local high school or college student pursuing a career in the media production industry. Tickets start at $150. For more information, contact the Film Commission at [email protected] or 216-623-3910.
