Ferndale Film Festival
Known for decades now as Fashionable Ferndale, the dynamic burg fronting Historic Woodward Avenue will soon host the Ferndale Film Festival that promises to be a signature event for the summer season.
The Ferndale Film Festival, dubbed in hipster lexicon as F3, will take place September 3-7, 2009. F3 will include several screens dotted about the city, “Drive-In” theatres, workshops, exhibitions, VIP events and more…..
Ferndale is identified through the Michigan Film Incentives as a core community and has served as locations for several films over the past year including “Youth in Revolt” and “Prayers for Bobby”.
Founded by film lovers, critics and talents, the F3 seeks to promote and nurture the burgeoning film activity in Michigan. Participants will find an artistic setting, patrons from the creative class and great opportunities for networking and growth.
Filmmakers will find a user-friendly submission process and screening committee to make their efforts as productive and inclusive as time and talent will allow. Feel free to express yourself and reach out to them with any questions or comments at any point along the way.
The inaugural year is expected to draw a crowd of between 10,000 and 15,000 people over the four day period. Ferndale represents a diverse and green community whose main population (66%) is between the ages of 20 and 55. Ferndale’s population doubles on weekend evenings with a crowd eager to see and be seen.
