East Lansing Film Festival
November 9 - 17, 2011
The East Lansing Film Festival (ELFF) is the largest and most diverse film festival in Michigan to screen independent and foreign feature, documentary, short and students films from around the world. The ELFF was created in 1997 in cooperation with the City of East Lansing and Michigan State University. Since then, ELFF has been dedicated to bringing quality foreign and independent films to the state of Michigan in order to expose our audience to diverse cultures, ideas, and creative works.
The 14th annual East Lansing Film Festival will take place November 9 through 17th, 2011. The Lake Michigan Film Competition (LMFC) will be held during the festival. This competition gives cash awards to the filmmakers whose film was at least one quarter filmed, produced, or financed in the states that border Lake Michigan - Michigan, Illinois, Indiana, and Wisconsin. The categories for the awards are Feature, Long Documentary, Short Documentary, Short Film, Student Documentary, Student Narrative and Other Media. We are very pleased to offer the Message Makers Most Promising Student Award, a prize package worth $7,000. This very popular event was created to encourage, foster and help promote filmmaking in Michigan and its neighboring states.
The mission of the Greater Lansing Festival Alliance is to facilitate, promote and support Greater Lansing non-profit cultural and artistic festivals in order to positively impact and enhance quality of life in the capital region.
