Festival Name: Grand Rapids Film Festival
Location: Grand Rapids, MI, United States
The Grand Rapids Film Festival was created to:
Benefit the Filmmaker.
To stimulate and perpetuate the creative talent of aspiring and professional filmmakers, and to give them a venue to express their voice through the cinematic arts. A voice that resonates with the family through films that are inspiring and challenging. We also want to connect them to other filmmakers, publishers and distribution opportunities.
Benefit the Audience.
Give the viewing audience quality independent movies that are raising the bar. Movies that are message driven and that the family can enjoy and invest in.
Benefit the Community.
A film festival brings fun, newcomers, dollars, exposure and recognition to Grand Rapids. To continue to elevate Grand Rapids to a proper reflection of who we are – what we can be – in the area of cinematic arts. Also, the film industry is a growing asset for economic development in our state, helping to attract an educated and creative workforce.
Benefit the Sponsors.
The benefit to sponsors is to be associated with the arts in a highly visible way that also promotes family-minded entertainment options, resulting in both positive economic and social impact.
