Join us in Alpena for a weekend of ocean and lakes documentaries
Three Great Lakes Now specials will be among the 60 films screened at the Thunder Bay International Film Festival in late January.
The five-day festival, hosted by the Friends of the Thunder Bay National Marine Sanctuary, will include films about the Great Lakes and the world’s oceans, thanks to the event’s partnership with the International Ocean Film Festival, said Stephanie Gandulla, acting research coordinator at the sanctuary.
“Since we’re here in the Great Lakes, we really want to showcase Great Lakes content and get Great Lakes filmmakers here as well,” she said.
Some of those filmmakers will be students. Saturday’s lineup will include screenings of work by middle and high schoolers, followed by a panel of filmmakers.
Specific times and dates are pending for showings during the Jan. 23-27 event, but the full festival schedule will be available in a few weeks. Ticket sales begin Jan. 7.
