Presented By

Join us this Thursday, June 20, 2024, for a LUNCH (12:00-1:30pm) meeting at The Transept (1205 Elm St, 45202), for a program with Kristen Schlotman, Executive Director, Film Cincinnati.

Kristen Schlotman is President/CEO of Film Cincinnati. Schlotman began her tenure with the commission in 1997. Since taking on the role, Schlotman has positioned the Cincinnati region as a world-class destination for production and is credited with cultivating the burgeoning film ecosystem within the region. Schlotman’s efforts have created a billion-dollar industry for the state of Ohio and is responsible for getting
Cincinnati on Moviemaker Magazine’s list of top places to live and work in the film industry for the past five consecutive years. Most recently, Cincinnati hosted the productions of “The Wise Guys” starring Robert DeNiro and “The Bikeriders” starring Tom Hardy and Austin Butler. When Schlotman is not assisting with productions or marketing Cincinnati to Hollywood, she can be found leading the charge in the expansion of both Ohio and Kentucky’s Motion Picture Tax Credits. Schlotman is recognized as the leader in broadening Cincinnati’s production portfolio and laying the foundation for a sustainable production industry in Ohio by implementing some of the best tax incentives worldwide. Schlotman is directly tied to the implementation of thousands of jobs for Ohioans, siphoning hundreds of millions of dollars in revenue to the city, and generating a wave of local pride through the creation of film. She has received many accolades along the way, including a 2024 Career Woman of Achievement, the Queen City Advocate Award several times, 40 Under Forty, Leadership Cincinnati, Cincinnati Enquirer’s 20
Women to Watch, and the Business Courier’s “Women Who Mean Business”.

This week’s meeting is sponsored by Heartland Bank (Rotarian Mike Fitzgerald) and Rotarian Bob McElroy.
