  • Grand Rapids Film Festival
    When the organizers of Grand Rapids Film Festival look at a blank movie screen, they see a field of possibility?a fresh canvas onto which writers, actors, and filmmakers can channel their dreams.

There's something for virtually every viewer, from the family-friendly movies shown at the Grand Rapids Public Museum to the edgier films played during a brew-n-view segment at Pyramid Scheme.
