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. The festival showcases those dreams once each year during a multiday juried film competition, which takes place throughout the city.
The festival generally bypasses mainstream flicks in favor of underground cinema, eye-opening documentaries, and films that highlight the region. 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.
