After a successful inaugural year in South Haven, Waterfront Film Festival is excited to announce that the 16th Annual event will be returning to South Haven, Michigan, June 12-15, 2014.
In 2013 nearly 90 documentaries, dramas, comedies and short films were showcased on seven screens throughout the four day event. A record number of filmmakers descended upon the beachfront town to talk about their films before and after the screenings, as well as participate in Q&A panels.
Festival organizers have been approached by many new sponsors and volunteers who are committed to helping with Waterfront Film Festival's second year in South Haven. Please see our website for more info if you would like to join the team of sponsors and/or volunteers.
Through a partnership of financial donors, the City government, the South Haven Center for the Arts, Convention and Visitors Bureau and Chamber, Waterfront Film Festival will expand to be bigger and better in 2014.
In keeping with the ongoing growth of the festival, a local philanthropist stepped forward with a significant financial commitment to underwrite the hiring of a Director of Development who will focus on fundraising and handle day-to-day, year round operations of putting the festival together. More information about the job opportunity can be found below.
This has been one of our goals since the beginning. It is wonderful to finally be at this point. Having a full-time staff member dedicated to development is a crucial step in taking the Waterfront Film Festival to new heights and to achieve long term success for the non-profit organization.
