Canton Film strives to recognize and support the often-overlooked creative community of Northeast Ohio by providing educational resources, networking, and opportunities to showcase the work of independent artists and filmmakers.

Jim Fogarty at TEDxYoungstown

Earlier this year, local filmmaker and friend to Canton Film Jim Fogarty gave an inspiring talk about starting small and finding success by following your dreams.  It'll probably be the most inspiring 9 minutes of your day!

Fogarty was born in Warren, Ohio, where his first film, Waxing Gibbous was made. His most recent film is the documentary short A Legacy Reborn: The Rebirth of the W. D. Packard Music Hall.
