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 9th annual East Lansing Film Festival will take place March 22nd through 26th, 2006 and includes five days of screenings. On the final day of the ELFF, the Lake Michigan Film Competition will be held. This competition gives cash awards to the filmmakers whose film was either filmed, produced, or financed in the states that border Lake Michigan - Wisconsin, Illinois, Indiana, and Michigan . The categories for the awards are Feature, Documentary, Short Film and Student Film. We are very pleased to offer the Message Makers Most Promising Student Award, a prize package worth $10,000. This very popular event was created to encourage, foster and help promote filmmaking in Michigan and the neighboring states.
