“The best way to experience a festival is just kind of go with an open mind and see all of the different films that you think you might be interested in,” Lednicer said. “Our programming team screened — I think — 450 films in order to [get] it down to the 54 that we’re presenting.”
The festival will showcase the best feature-length dramas, comedies and documentaries from some of the world’s best festivals — including Sundance, Cannes, Venice, Toronto, Berlin, SXSW and Tribeca.READ MORE: New Bus Shelters Coming To Underserved Areas In Grand Rapids
