Thriller! Chiller! Film Festival

Grand Rapids Art Museum, Grand Rapids Brewing Co., The Pyramid Scheme, Stella's Lounge, and UICA

The WMFVA is proud to announce its sponsorship of Thriller! Chiller!, Michigan's original international genre film festival who are proud to screen the best in world class movies for their audience in downtown Grand Rapids!

Action, horror, sci-fi and suspense horror movies like those you discovered as a kid on some random Saturday afternoon hanging with your friends at the theater. Or a movie you found late one night on television after the parents went to bed and you couldn't catch a wink of sleep before - or after - watching it.

Thank you to everyone who submitted projects and films, we are thrilled to have a full night of great talent! 

Join us October 22nd, 2014 at Wealthy Street Theater's Koning Micro Cinema.

We look forward to seeing you all there.

The WMFVA is a proud sponsor of The Mosaic Film Experience, a two-day film festival celebrating thought-provoking views of the world around you, in Grand Rapids, Michigan. High school and college students are empowered to use film as a forum for conversations about diversity and different views of the world around us in a three-step process: learn, create, share.

Cash prizes will be awarded to the top three films from each category (three high school student films, three college student films). And new this year, The Rick Wilson Memorial Prize given to the best High School and College entry from West Michigan.

I just wanted to say thank you for all of the wonderful responses I've gotten from people in this group.  I am proud to be part of such a dedicated and helpful group of professionals!  I will be sure to give a plug for the members of the WMFVA when I am receiving my first Academy Award.  :>)
