This year, we will be expanding the Cinetopia Film Festival to at least five screens in Ann Arbor, and at least four screens in Detroit. For the 2013 Festival, we had four screens in Ann Arbor, and one screen in Detroit. We are excited to add more screens because that means we can bring more movies as well as screen the best more than once!

Last year, the locations in Ann Arbor were The Michigan Theater, the State Theatre, and Angell Hall on the University of Michigan campus. Our Detroit screen was at the Detroit Institute of Arts. We are very pleased to be expanding fourfold in Detroit this year, returning to the Detroit Institute of Arts, as well as several new locations in the cultural hub of Woodward Ave. and Warren Ave. We look forward to announcing them soon…

In the meanwhile, last week, two of our festival staff members toured several of our new locations, generating ideas for building the festive atmosphere and bringing the Cinetopia spirit to Detroit!

We look forward to bringing you Cinetopia news weekly – from updates on programming to cool film initiatives, we will keep you in the festival loop!
