157. Waterfront Film Festival

June 8, 2011

In what has quickly become a tradition, the idyllic resort village of Saugatuck, Michigan comes alive each June with filmgoers, actors, producers and directors sharing the excitement as outstanding independent films from all over the United States are screened in casual, intimate settings. Entertainment professionals from Los Angeles, New York and Michigan created the Waterfront Film Festival in 1999 to provide a “middle coast” venue for independent filmmakers eager to show their work to sophisticated audiences. The festival has succeeded with growing support and recognition each year, and enthusiastic reviews from attendees. The festival alone is a single great reason reason to visit Saugatuck but the fact of the matter is there is plenty to do, see, eat, buy, or sit and do nothing on the beach. If you have a boat this is a great place to sail down to for the day.

Besides all that I think all West Michiganders should support this festival for many reasons. If this Fest could grow to be known as the summer Sundance it would be great for the local economy, it would help bring more movie production to the area, and help bring more people from the two coasts that normally would just fly over that might just invest in West Michigan.

This a great fest and great town, go have a great time!!!! maybe you will see some celebrities!!
