Cinetopia International Film Festival returns to Detroit

Posted: Updated:
(WJBK) -

Experience more than 40 of the best feature-length dramas, comedies, and documentaries from the world's best film festivals, including Sundance, Cannes, Venice, Toronto, and Berlin, all selected exclusively for Cinetopia by the Michigan Theater programming team.

Cinetopia will honor the rich world history of cinema artists and Michigan's proud legacy of outstanding screenwriters through special pre- and post-film events, including presentations, discussion panels, and Q&A sessions with directors, writers, and stars.

The Cinetopia Film Festival, started last year in Southeastern Michigan, just announced its most recent partnership with the Detroit Film Theatre. Cinetopia and the DTF, along with other venues in the area, will be showcasing over 40 films from Thursday, June 6 through Sunday, June 9.

One of the goals of this year's Cinetopia is to bring additional special content to every film at the festival, not just at the Altman Symposium.

"Our theme is 'Cinema Comes Alive,' which means getting our audiences to interact with each film in some meaningful way, whether it's participating in a Q&A with the actors and filmmakers, listening to a panel discussion by industry and academic experts, or sharing their thoughts with us and other festival-goers at a coffee shop or bar after the show," says Amanda Bynum, Festival Director.
