Weeklong East Lansing Film Festival begins Wednesday
For 15 years, East Lansing Film Festival, or ELFF, has been the largest film festival in Michigan that screens independent features, student films, shorts and documentaries from all over the globe.
This year, the event will take place from Nov. 7 to Nov. 15.
ELFF was started in cooperation with the city of East Lansing and Michigan State University in 1997, with the hopes of exposing the Lansing area to new “diverse cultures, ideas and creative works.”
During the festival, the Lake Michigan Film Competition, or LMFC, will be held. LMFC gives away cash awards to filmmakers who created their film in any state that borders Lake Michigan. They will also give away the Message Makers Most Promising Student Award, which is worth $7,000.
The festival will feature about a week of more than 40 films. Ticket prices vary and can be purchased online until the start of the festival.
