With "30 Minutes or Less" opening this weekend, Grand Rapids film making is in the forefront of the local art scene. So what better way to celebrate Grand Rapids film making then by checking out the Grand Rapids Film Fest. Tonight through Friday on the Grand Rapids campus of Western Michigan University at Cherry and Ionia.

The Grand Rapids Film Festival offers something that’s hard to find in a film festival. Affordability. Every film is $5 and there are no advance ticket sales. In other words, you don’t have to worry about getting shut out if you come early. The festival runs Wednesday – Friday, August 10 – August 12. There are documentaries, features, shorts, and student films. Shows start at 4:00pm each day, with the last show at 7:00pm or 8:00pm.
