Najada Davis, a senior in Cleveland State University’s Film and Media Arts program, formally known as Film/TV and interactive media, wanted to leave a legacy at Cleveland State before he graduates this spring. He has come up with an idea for a film club that will not only leave a legacy, but benefit Cleveland State’s film students as well. “I’ve seen the lack of comradery and organized community in the film department,” Davis said.

“It wasn’t a very positive experience coming into. I want to take control of it and make it a positive environment.”

Davis has posted numerous fliers in the Music and Communication building in hopes of searching for an executive board to get “7th Art Film Club” on its feet. Davis and his peer Marty Barnard, who is also in Cleveland State’s film program, are leading the search.

“We want to start this program in spring 2018 so there will be an easier transition when the film program moves to the Idea Center sixth floor,” Davis said.

Cleveland State announced in spring 2017 that the new Film and Media Arts program will move to the sixth floor of the Idea Center at Playhouse Square where its facilities will cater specifically to film students.

Viewing film is just part of this soon-to-be club. Producing films and building other skills that it takes to be a film major will be included in this group’s focus. Davis wants the club to encompass all things film so that there will never be a need to have multiple groups in the program, for example, a writing club for screen plays. Davis wants the club to oversee all the needs that the group would need, such as budget and room requirements.

“I really want to create this club to eliminate the bureaucracy of creating an organization,” Davis said.

The soon-to-be film club is looking for members to join the executive board. The club is not exclusive to film students, the club will be open to anyone who enjoys all aspects of film.
