Back for its 17th year, the 2014 East Lansing Film Festival is a world-class, annual celebration and exhibition of film, showcasing independent features, shorts, and documentaries, along with a host of related side events.
Scheduled for a variety of daily showings – from Thursday, October 30th through Thursday, November 6th, 2014 – the East Lansing Film Festival is the one of the oldest, largest, and most diversified film festivals in Michigan. More than just a simple film-fest, the East Lansing Film Festival also hosts the Lake Michigan Film Competition, the East Lansing Film Society Film Series, and the 48/5 Film Contest.
Started in 1997 with the support of the City of East Lansing and Michigan State University, the East Lansing Film Festival grows in submissions, events, and attendance with every year. Dedicated to bringing quality foreign, independent, and emerging talent via student films to light, the East Lansing Film Festival remains a consistently fresh and influential event – not to mention an all-around great way to see the newest and the best on the film-horizon!
As of this writing, this year’s East Lansing Film Festival schedule of films and events has yet to be announced, but last year’s winners included Jason Schaver’s “Wingmen Incorporated” for Best Feature Film, Alex Agnant and Joseph Ward’s “When The Waves Call” for Best Short Film, Jason Kohl’s “The Slaughter” for Best Student Film, and Sophia Kruz’s “A Space for Music, A Seat for Everyone: 100 Years of UMS Performances in Hill Auditorium” for Best Documentary Film.
So, whether you’re an avid film buff or just a casual, popcorn-chomping, movie-goer, the 2014 East Lansing Film Festival has something for you!
