Waterfront Film Festival Will Return To South Haven In 2014


In 2013, Waterfront Film Festival moved from Saugatuck for the first time. The festival was held in South Haven.

The move was successful and Waterfront Film Festival will return to South Haven in 2014.

The decision to move Waterfront Film Festival from Saugatuck after over 14 years was a controversial one and upsetting to many.

Last year, the festival announced plans to stop at more cities in the years to come, in addition to returning to Saugatuck. says:

Following an outpouring of community
support and a successful inaugural year in South Haven, Waterfront Film Festival
organizers are announcing the Festival will return in 2014 to the beachfront town for a
16th year of independent film on the waterfront.

Waterfront Film Festival also had good news about the future of the festival:

“Through a partnership of financial donors, the City government, the South Haven Center
for the Arts, CVB and Chamber, Waterfront Film Festival will expand to be bigger and
better in 2014,” festival Co-founder Hopwood DePree said.

A local philanthropist stepped forward with a significant financial commitment to
underwrite the hiring of a Director of Development who will focus on fundraising and
handle day-to-day, year-round operations of putting the festival together.

The 2014 Waterfront Film Festival will run June 12 – 15.

Looking forward to another summer of beaches and movies along Lake Michigan’s shoreline!
