Coming Up

Reinvent WMFVA - Film Community Town Hall Meeting

Tuesday, January 13, 2015, 6:30pm - 9pm
Compass College of Cinematic Arts Theater
41 Sheldon Blvd.
Grand Rapids, MI

Ten years ago as of January 2015, the West Michigan Film Video Alliance was born! Many of you were a very special part of that moment, a charter member or sponsor of the WMFVA that has grown with us over the years.  Now it's time to think of the future - the next ten years! Every organization needs to invent new goals, new challenges, and new thinking to stay fresh - and we're on it! 

Members of our board conducted a focus group with some of the filmmakers in our region to get their input on our film community needs and how the WMFVA can help. We'll share those ideas and ask for your input. We'll also hear from our community partners including Kristen Taylor, Development Officer at Urban Institute for Contemporary Arts (UICA), Rick Hert, Film Commissioner at the West Michigan Film Office, and others.

We invite all who are interested in growing the West Michigan film community to our first WMFVA Town Hall Meeting. This event leads up to our 10th Anniversary Silver Celebration year that kicks off at the SpeakEZ Lounge January 23, 2015 (see below).

 So join us. Build the future. Start with the next ten years.

Get Ready to Party!

Friday, January 23, 2015, 6:30pm - 10pm
