Local filmmakers are a key part of the arts in the area, and Hivemind Films is a great example of local excellence. The film collective claims to be a “group of weirdos making videos and 3D printing stuff.” Working out of a space they lovingly refer to as “the nerd cave,” Hivemind Films has an illustrious YouTube channel filled with parody videos and comedy creations. You can check out the short films via Hivemind Films on YouTube, or learn more about the group on social media.

Toledo is home to a large comedy scene, including venues and individuals. The best comedian in Toledo is Emily Garrow, a largely improvisation comedian in the area. Having been a part of the Glass City Improv group for four years, Garrow started doing open mics a year and a half ago at the Ottawa Tavern. If you need an excuse to get out during the week, you can catch Garrow on Thursday nights at Brew Works downtown. For more information, check out her Facebook page.
