A film festival focusing on ocean and Great Lakes issues returns to Michigan’s northeast Lower Peninsula.
The Three Corpse Circus gets underway next week.
There will be a variety of feature and short films — from action, drama, animation to comedy.
The festival features more than 200 films, videos and live performances with better than 30 world, North American and U.S. premieres.
CBS 62 had the chance to catch up with Jessica Golden – she’s the producer on the film Los Wild Ones – to hear about the festival, the multi-award winner and nominated documentary film, and why Detroit is important to her. Los Wild Ones premiered earlier this year at the 2013 Documentary Competition at South by Southwest. The film makes its premiere in Detroit with the Uptown Film Festival.
It’s Michigan’s answer to the Sundance, Toronto, and Cannes Film Festivals. The Uptown Film Festival runs through Saturday night in Birmingham.
Officials now say the price tag could reach $1.5 million.
The 48 Hour Film Project is here in Detroit this weekend, and with the competition only a few days away, we sat down with an experienced professional in weekend film challenges. Shane Sevo is a local Detroit film producer and he truly loves the weekend film challenge format. He’s competed for 10 consecutive years in the National Weekend Film Challenge, which has a very similar set of rules to the 48 Hour Film Project, and has won multiple awards over the years.
Summer is here and the Detroit Historical Society is bringing back the most popular films from its monthly film series.
A southeastern Michigan film festival in its early stages is hoping to someday rival Sundance and Toronto.
