2013 Waterfront Film Festival Schedule And Ticket Information
A Michigan summertime tradition is just around the corner...at a new location.
The 2013 Waterfront Film Festival moves to South Haven this year, after 14 years in Saugatuck.
Films and ticket information were announced this morning.
Waterfront Film Festival's move to South Haven was not without controversy. Festival organizers would like to rotate future locations among a variety of cities and expect to return to Saugatuck at some point, but many in Saugatuck were not happy to see them leave.
This year's festival runs June 13 -16 and offers something for everyone. Here are a couple of highlights from waterfrontfilm.org:
• “Syrup”, based on the best-selling book of the same title, is an edgy comedy that
details the cut-throat world of advertising through the eyes of a young prodigy
chasing fame, fortune, and the woman of his dreams. Starring Amber Heard,
Brittany Snow and Kellan Lutz.
• “Between Us” is a dark comedic drama about two couples reuniting over the course of two incendiary evenings where anything can happen. Grace and Carlo are a newly married New York couple who visit their old friends Sharyl and Joel in their huge Midwestern home, collectively navigating rocky relationships, parenthood and financial woes. Starring Julia Stiles and Taye Diggs.
Individual tickets for this year's film festival start at $12/person and go WAY up from there. Day passes start at $90 and go up into the thousands.
It's going to be interesting to see Waterfront Film Festival at a new location. There are sure to be challenges with moving to a new city. Plus, the effect the move has on attendance could strongly influence the rotation of future locations.
Wishing Waterfront Film Festival the best as they bring another weekend full of great films to our area!
