SAULT STE. MARIE, Mich. (July 9, 2014)—Taylor Brugman and Soo Film Festival, Inc. have announced the lineup for the first ever Soo Film Festival, to be held August 1 and 2 at the historic Soo Theatre in downtown Sault Ste. Marie, Michigan. This summer’s festival includes narrative and documentary features, music videos and animation, and short films with a focus on the Great Lakes.
“In this, our first year, we were impressed by the diversity and quality of the submissions and the talent represented. We are excited to have all of the films we are offering as part of our festival,”said festival founder and president Taylor Brugman.
“As an unknown film festival, we had no idea what to expect in terms of submissions. We’re very gratified to have received more films than we have time to show in our two-day schedule. Several of the films were filmed right here in this area and we are delighted to see how many talented filmmakers we have from our very own town,” continued Brugman.
Tickets will go on sale on Saturday, July 19. At that time, tickets can be purchased online at soofilmfestival.org, or in person at the Soo Theatre office located on 534 Ashmun Street.
“We owe a huge thank-you to the Soo Theatre Project for supporting us in our mission to bring movies back to downtown Sault Ste. Marie,” said Brugman. “We urge everyone who wants to see that happen to come out and support the festival.”
