GRAND RAPIDS, Mich.--- More than a dozen promising student filmmakers will be honored Saturday as they accept awards from the Meijer Great Choices Student Film Festival.
As part of the competition, students from across Michigan submitted more than 320 Public Service Announcement videos promoting positive choices among two age groups of youth. A panel of media students and professors from Compass College of Cinematic Arts, Ferris State University, Grand Valley State University and Western Michigan University helped whittle down the number of entries to 60.
At 10 a.m. on Saturday, June 7, the competition will culminate with 18 of the 60 finalists being honored with $21,000 in prizes and awards. The presentation will take place at Celebration Cinema North at Knapp’s Corner, located at 2121 Celebration Drive NE in Grand Rapids.
