A diverse, thought provoking film showcase, brought to you by Ann Arbor’s tech community.

In 2018, a group of creatives based in the heart of Ann Arbor’s flourishing tech community made something cool happen. A short film showcase—non-juried—that challenged filmmakers to think outside of the box with diverse perspectives.

In 2020, the showcase is continuing to evolve.
