Film Society meets tonight in Metamora

METAMORA — The Made-in- Michigan Film Festival organization will hold its first movie night of the year tonight in the Old Township Hall in downtown Metamora.

The movie night will begin at 7:30 p.m. and will include a screening of a previous winner at the annual Made-in- Michigan Film Festival, held in downtown Lapeer.

The Made-in-Michigan Film Festival took a one-year hiatus last year, but the organization is back to offer Lapeer County residents and film lovers a chance to view Michigan-made films, talk to filmmakers and help to promote Lapeer County as an attractive filming location for movie and television.

At the last film festival, held a year and a half ago at the PIX Theatre in downtown Lapeer, hundreds of filmmakers, visitors and Lapeer County residents spent two days watching independent films that were made right here in Michigan. At the end of the festival, winners were chosen by a panel of judges, and one of those winners is returning to Lapeer next week to show their film and talk with guests at the meeting.

The last meeting of the film society took place a year ago when the Lapeer Area View’s community editor, Jacob Hunsanger, presented an untitled documentary chronicling a group of college students carrying three paraplegic individuals to the peak of Mount Olympus in Greece.
