The Mitten Movie Project is a monthly film festival dedicated to screening independent films. Began in 2005, it has evolved into a great venue, outlet, and incubator for independent filmmaking. It regularly attracts 100-150 moviegoers each month.
The Mitten Movie Project screens independent shorts, trailers, student films, documentaries, music videos, experimental shorts, and animations. While the majority of the shorts accepted are from Michigan, the MMP is not limited to Michigan-made shorts as it has screened work from other states and countries. The only requirement is that the short be independent – meaning, not studio backed or with studio distribution.
