Frankfort Film Festival Blooms at the Garden Theater

In Community Alert on October 12, 2016 at 3:53 pm

October 20-23

The City of Frankfort and the historic Garden Theater come together to elevate the human spirit through film, with 20 award-winning features at the 8th Annual Film Festival, October 20–23!

As usual, some of the year’s inspired independent filmmakers will be on hand to share their stories: Bill Latka, producer of Year by the Sea (Thursday 4:30); director Edd Benda of Superior (Saturday 4:30); director Michael Bofshever of Echo Park Blues (Saturday 4:30).

Three film shorts produced by students at Michigan’s Interlochen Arts Academy’s school of Motion Picture Arts will be shown preceding three of the feature films.

Special thanks to Northway Orthodontics and the FFF’s producing sponsors for continuing their commitment to bringing world-class cinematic entertainment to Benzie County.
