SAULT STE. MARIE, Mich. (July 31, 2014)—Some of the filmmakers will be in attendance to talk about their films. Friday night, Bill Blanchard will answer questions about A Difference of Rights. Traverse City’s Rich Brauer will be on hand to discuss all things Dogman Friday and Saturday night. There will also be a Q&A following the shorts presentation Saturday afternoon.

The Soo Film Festival coincides with Sault Ste. Marie’s Sidewalk Sales and Ashmun Street will be closed to traffic from 9am to 6pm. The closest option for parking will be behind the theatre in the lots along Oaka Street and in the parking garage. Use the walkway next to the Avery Center to get to Ashmun Street. Festival goers will also be able to park on Court Street and walk through the Sault Tribe Administration Building to get to Ashmun Street. (See a map showing the closest parking to the Soo Theatre.)

Soo Film Festival tickets and passes may be purchased online at or at the Soo Theatre. For tickets by phone call (906) 632-1930. The Film Festival Guide and the schedule will also be available at the Soo Theatre, or online in full color.

Festival President Taylor Brugman: “We want everyone to come experience all of downtown, not just the Film Festival. Sidewalk sales, the car show, Downtown Days, there is something for everyone. The Soo Film Festival is just one more reason to see what the city has to offer.”
