You (maybe... okay maybe not) heard it here first: Ann Arbor is getting a brand-spankin' new film festival, called Cinetopia. It'll be four days, from May 31 - June 3, and will show 80 movies over that time. 80! We were told* that this festival will be different than the Ann Arbor Film Festival, in that the A2FF is experimental film, whereas all of the movies at Cinetopia will be "plot-based." Think feature-length films that are good, but just aren't huge enough to always make it to Ann Arbor. Or if you've been to the Traverse City Film Festival, it'll be more like that.
Tickets will be $15/film, or $12 if you're a member of some sort. They went through the titles of a few films, and I have to say that I am most excited for a Cuban horror film that's coming called...
...wait for it...
Juan of the Dead.
*Fellow DA-er Joshua Stoolman and I are members of the Michigan Theater, and went to a meeting on Sunday that discussed The New Deal. There's a press conference sometime today, so I assume The Com will be over it too... I hope.
