Founded by documentary filmmaker Michael Moore, this film festival puts its emphasis on foreign films, American independents, documentaries, and films which have been overlooked.
Classic movies show free of charge on a giant, inflatable outdoor screen overlooking Grand Traverse Bay in the Open Space Park at dusk.
Panel discussions with directors, writers, actors, and other members of the film industry are offered daily, for free. And an affordable film school runs throughout the festival, offering twice daily classes for film students and film lovers.
Festival runs July 31-August 5.
