(We recommend this event!)
Wayne County Executive, Robert A. Ficano and Wayne State University are proud to present the third annual Detroit Windsor International Film Festival (DWIFF) June 24-27.
This year’s slate of films promises to be the highest quality and most entertaining schedule the festival has provided to date. Not only has the growing prominence of Michigan in the film industry led to an increase in the number and quality of submissions, but this year for the first time DWIFF is partnering with the WSU MovingMedia Student Film Festival featuring submissions from student filmmakers from Wayne State and other regional colleges and universities.
Numerous activities will take place at both festivals. They will kick off with an opening reception on June 24 with remarks by DWIFF Festival Manager John F. Kelly, Wayne County Executive Robert A. Ficano and Michigan Film Office Workforce Development Director Richard Jewell. A short film screening will follow the remarks. On Friday, June 25, Wayne State will host film screenings at locations across campus from 7 to 11 p.m. On Saturday, June 26, the festival will host a Tech Fair from noon to 4 p.m. that offers education and training sessions geared to current film industry practices and procedures. Film screenings on June 26 will occur from 5 to 11 p.m. A combined awards ceremony for both DWIFF and MovingMedia will be held on Sunday, June 27, following the screenings from the 48 Hour Film Challenge.
All events are free to WSU students with their OneCard. For more detailed information including information about submissions, please visit http://www.dwiff.org/ and http://movingmediafilmfestival.com .
