Moving from "Carol" to "Miles Ahead," the works of the Greater Cincinnati & NKY Film Commission

  Rainman. ?Traffic. ?The Ides of March.

Greater Cincinnati has had a leading role in dozens of major motion pictures. And film crews had just wrapped up ?Carol,? starring Cate Blanchett and Rooney Mara, when we learned that ?Miles Ahead will be filmed here this summer. The movie about jazz innovator and trumpeter Miles Davis will star Don Cheadle. Greater Cincinnati & Northern Kentucky Film Commission Executive Director Kristen Erwin Schlotman and Lenore Zerman, one of the producers on Miles Ahead, talk about why our region is attractive to movie producers and what the film industry means to the local economy.
