What is Cinetopia?
The Cinetopia Film Festival is an annual, curated festival in metro Detroit, featuring more than 50 of the best feature-length dramas, comedies, and documentaries from the world’s best film festivals (Sundance, Cannes, Venice, Toronto, Berlin, SXSW, Tribeca, and more). It takes place over the span of 10 days every spring at venues throughout the region.
Days to Cinetopia
U-M Screen Arts Mavericks and Makers Symposium
University of Michigan’s Hatcher Library is home to extensive archives and materials documenting the careers of several American filmmakers known for coloring outside the lines: Robert Altman, Ira Deutchman, Alan Rudolph, John Sayles, and Orson Welles. Together they make U-M a major destination for research on these American maverick filmmakers.
Join us this May as we celebrate NANCY SAVOCA as a member of this prestigious group. Panels, screenings, and special guests (including Ms. Savoca herself) will take part.
